Tubeho Neza Rwanda!
Weâ€™re excited to introduce Program Rwanda, an innovative program that will distribute 600,000 clean cookstoves and water filters to the poorest 30% of households in all 30 districts of Rwanda, and subsequently build a retail program to sell another 600,000 cookstoves and water filters to the higher income households over the next several years.
Run by DelAgua Health Limited with support from the Rwanda Ministry of Health, this program is a public health project designed to reduce the threats of pneumonia and diarrhea, which account for 20% and 12% of deaths of children under 5 respectively.
EcoZoom is supplying the projectâ€™s cookstove and bringing our expertise to the implementation. This is the largest program of its kind in Africa and so many unique features to it including:
- Two technologies to address pressing household health problems in tandem
- Training that digs deeper into the most common user-uptake issues and seeks to overcome them through extensive, interactive guidance at the point of distribution and in the home
- Rigorous monitoring & evaluation, complete with remote monitoring sensors, follow up surveys and randomized control trials
- Building a retail program on the back of a large giveaway in such a short timeframe.
We canâ€™t wait to bring you more news as Program Rwanda unfolds and these life-changing technologies get into the hand of people who need them most.
