More about Clean Air Kitchen
In rural Nicaragua, the carbon monoxide concentration in a typical kitchen is 400ppm which is considered life threatening after only 3 hours of exposure. The carbon monoxide concentration in a Clean Air Kitchen is only 5ppm.
The Problem: In rural Nicaraguan homes, smoke inhalation from indoor, wood-burning stoves is the leading cause of respiratory disease, as well as a major killer of children under 5 years old. In addition, preventable illnesses are spread by food prepared on porous wooden tables and concrete surfaces that are difficult to sanitize.
The Solution: Affordable kitchens that feature a smokeless stove and a tiled food preparation area can prevent sickness and disease caused by unhealthy food preparation conditions.
