Maendeleo Jiko

The Maendeleo Jiko is made from a clay liner, installed in a mud surround. The liner has been designed so that the wood burns as efficiently as possible. The liner automatically gives the best size of door. Firebox  and pot rests. The door in the front lets in the right amount of air, and two sticks of dry firewood are fed in here. The pot rests make sure that there is the right space between the top of the liner and the cooking pot so that air can also pass through there.


The Maendeleo Jiko is a simple stove that helps improve the conditions of a traditional kitchen, and helps reduce the amount of firewood needed. It helps women have more choice in the use of their time.
