Light Mountain

Micro-financing entrepreneurs to sell clean cooking stoves in Tanzania in order to combat the high levels of both respiratory illness and deforestation in the region.

Every year, 2 million people die from breathing in toxic fumes from cooking over an open fire. These fumes are directly linked to respiratory illnesses, which is the leading cause of child death in developing countries. LightMountain aims to improve health, whilst generating income and creating sustainable enterprises for individuals living below the poverty line, using solar technology.
