The PHPI Smokeless Stove program helps Nepali families breathe easier and contributes to our goal of sustainable development in areas affected by natural disaster.

Indoor air pollution is second only to AIDS as the primary cause of death in developing countries. In an effort to combat this harsh reality, PHPI directors have been working with international organizations and funders to bring smokeless stoves to households in the central Himalayan mountains.

The technology for these stoves not only reduces emission levels but also fuel consumption, so the Nepali families receiving them will have healthier lungs and hearts and will also be saving precious capital in regions where resources are scarce.
