The efforts in the third quarter of our internal Leading the Way challenge will go to the charitable organization atmosfair. Together with atmosfair we are supporting a pilot project in West Bengal, India by subsidizing the sale of highly efficient wood gasifier stoves. In Burkina Faso, West Africa we support the expansion of the drinking water networks with more water kiosks. Find out more about the projects we support:
With our help, atmosfair will subsidize the sale of highly efficient wood gasifier stoves in West Bengal, India. Wood gas stoves allow for efficient and smoke-free cooking and also produce charcoal that can be used or sold. This improves the economic situation of locals and simultaneously supports the conservation of Mangrove forests and its biodiversity including the Bengal Tiger.
We support atmosfair with the installation and operation of several water kiosks across Burkina Faso to provide locals access to safe drinking water. This will lead to a reduction of adverse health effects related to waterborne diseases associated with unsafe water usage and related to harmful gases during combustion of firewood for boiling water.
