In the Gambia, wood is used for cooking, construction, and local tool production. There is often more need for wood, than the number of local trees can support.

REAP-Canada developed the Mayon Turbo Stove to help reduce people's dependency on wood as a source of fuel for cooking meals. This stove was developed by REAP in cooperation with the local people of the Gambia, and it burns well with selective crop residues. millet husks, peanut shells, corn cob pieces, small pieces of grass and rice hull. This allows the women of the Gambia to forage for fuel close to home, relieves a burdon on families that would otherwise be paying for fuelwood. For more information, see the REAP-Canada web site: Mayon Turbo Stove: Gambia Case Study
