Abstract

The primary goal of this project was to investigate better stoves for cooking in the informal settlement of Monwabisi Park that would best satisfy the following criteria: safe, healthful, accessible, inexpensive, socially acceptable, and sustainable. We researched stoves that safely used paraffin and presented two options that best met the criteria to the community. We hope that the use of these stoves will improve the health of residents while also decreasing fire hazards throughout the settlement.
