This school now has a waterproof roof ...... and here are the smokeless stoves being built..
The project we are helping in Nepal, is called The Tilden Project. It was started in Tilden's memory by one of the most wonderful ladies you will ever meet. Her son Tilden tragically died in a motor accident.
Respiratory disease ia a major cause of death in Nepal and burns are common, particularly among smaller childern. Cooking is still traditionally done on open fires in a hole in the kitchen floor. The new stoves, made from local clay, provide a heat source and a place to cook, but the smoke is removed from the house via a chimney. A smokless stove changes a whole family's life giving them a smoke and fire free, living area. Vanessa Arbuthnott Fabrics is paying for the lady builder in Aruchour, where the project has now provided 800 stoves, to teach people from neighbouring valleys the necessary skills to build stoves in their own villages, 200 have now been completed. The costs only £5.50 per stove! For more info please see www.tildenprojectnepal.org.uk
