This is the story of Monica, and the life change associated with the adoption of clean cooking solutions. With an efficient cookstove, Monica now saves money and time, allowing her children to go to school, her family to live healthier, and herself to know she is taking care of her family.

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves seeks to mobilize high-level national and donor commitments toward the goal of universal adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels. Its ambitious but achievable goal is to foster the adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels in 100 million households by 2020. The Alliance is mobilizing support from a wide range of private, public, and non-profit stakeholders.
