Every monthly donation helps more women like Savitha become eco-friendly
Savitha is a farmer in a small village in Karnataka. Savitha and her family have traditionally been using a chulha with a clay vessel to heat water for household purposes. This method requires about 16 cartloads of firewood annually.
Not only is this high on manpower requirements but is also a burden on the natural resources of the village. It was here that TRDC intervened and provided Savitha with an eco-friendly chulha. The firewood consumption has come down by 50%, with biowaste stepping in as an alternate fuel source.
Savitha and her family, now have hot water throughout the day, with no additional burden on the village's natural resources.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Tropical Research & Development Centre (TRDC) educates the villagers, especially women, regarding wastage of firewood for water heating purpose. It also makes them understand the importance of retaining forests to sustain agriculture and livelihood.
TRDC shows them alternative and fuel-efficient methods that are economically cheaper also. Motivated by this, many villagers have constructed improved Chulha for water heating. This is an eco-friendly device that in turn saves environment and resources.
When you donate to this program, you help a rural family get a smokeless Chulha.
