    Dear Katy,

    First of all, thank you for reading this email about what our organisation induces.
    My name is Kasper Jagt, student business administration at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and I doing an internship at Clean Cooking Revolution in Cape Town at the moment.

    Clean Cooking Revolution is an organisation that supports the families in the townships of Cape Town by selling clean cookstoves against an affordable rate. The stoves are being sold by the local people from the townships and Tuck-shops. To make the stoves affordable they are sold for 1/3th of the cost price, which means that 2/3 is financed by crowdfunding, funds, grants and donations. To make this work, it’s important that people are aware of the problem and the organisation.

    The families in the townships of Cape Town and South Africa in general cook on old stoves that burn on paraffin or even on open fire, which is really harmful to their health. Because of toxic smoke, there are more deadly victims than AIDS, HIV. and malaria combined. Thanks to the gasifying process in our stoves the fuel burns smoke-free, without the toxic vapors.

    Besides that, cooking on these old stoves or on an open fire is the main reason for the huge amount of townshipfires. South Africa faces 45.000 townshipfires a year, which leads to many townships burning down multiple times a year, leaving many families homeless. The neat and stable clean cookstoves, which works on easy to use wood pellets, prevents disastrous household fires in the vulnerable settlements.

    Not only is cooking on the clean cook stove healthier and safer for the families in the townships, but it’s also many times cheaper. The reason for this is that the use of wood pellets in the clean cook stoves is way cheaper than buying paraffin. A regular household can save 200 to 300 rand a month, which leads to a monthly income extra each year. This means that the investment in the stove is already earned back in less than 2 months. Besides that, another huge benefit is that the stove can be used to warm the shacks, which is necessary for the winter.

    Finally, Clean Cooking Revolution is creating jobs as well. By recruiting locals to sell the stoves instead of selling to shops. This creates a win-win situation where the local salesman can make an income because of the margin he earns on every sold stove.
    Besides that, they are the perfect salesmen for the job because of their local network within the township and knowledge of the situation.

    To make sure this project succeeds and the families in the townships can cook in a safe, clean and cheap way, the awareness of the situation and Clean Cooking Revolution is a must. It seems a good idea to raise this issue through your page. It is also an ideal platform to show the difference in prosperity related to safe cooking to the rest of the world, which certainly generates great content for your page.

    The content will be supplemented by visuals such as pictures. This Lifestyle pictures will show the impact of the stoves on the families in the township communities.

    To get a quick impression about the situation and what the organisation is doing you can watch the Clean Cooking Revolution video here

    It would be great if you could help us improve the situation of the families in the townships and I definitely think there is an added value for both parties.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,
