Dear Stovers

Since Aug 2003, my partner, Jayme Vineyard, and I have been working with GTZ ProBEC (Program for Biomass Energy Conservation) and EAP (Energy Advisory Project) as well as World Food Program and innumerable small businesses to introduce the Rocket Stove principle to a number of countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zambia).
