Smokless Stove Construction, Nepal 27 images

The construction of a smokless stove in a traditional nepali village dwelling, using local materials. The images show the process from start to finish, including the making of the bricks. Respiratory disease is a major cause of death in Nepal and burns are common, particularly among the smaller children. Cooking is currently done on open fires in a hole in the kitchen floor. The new stoves provide a source of heat and a place to cook but the smoke is removed from the house via the chimney. A smokeless stove changes a whole family’s life giving them a smoke and fire free living area.
