I really wanted a Chulika cookstove, because I had heard that you need much less firewood and that saves a lot of time. In the past it took me 3 hours to collect firewood and now I need much less wood. Moreover, we save our trees here. I also cook fast, because the flame is better and I get less smoke in my eyes and see much better. That's why I wanted a Chulika!
In 2012, JSMBT placed a Chulika cookstove at the house of Lakshmi at her request. JSMBT is the local partner of FairClimateFund in the Raichur region in India.
