Paal Wendelobo was an absolutely dedicated champion of clean cooking stoves, and the people that rely on them.
From his son:
"For almost 30 years, Paal brought attention to health and environmental issues connected to cooking and household energy for development countries. Paal found other people, later friends, with similar ideas and thoughts in this stove community. Despite arguments about stove design, function, and whom had the better stove. No doubt he was a pioneer, teacher but also he was a student."
"His simple Peko Pe stove invited people think new. He was also a pioneer of TLUD stoves."
He died with family a few days ago, and we'll miss him.
