The people of Bangladesh depend mainly on traditional stoves for cooking, but in traditional stoves, fuel wastage is a major problem. In order to prevent the wastage of energy, Bangladesh Bondhu Foundation (BONDHU) has been expanding Bondhu Chula nationwide, and that is setting up Bondhu Chula with chimneys. Besides Bondhu Chula activities, BONDHU has invented a portable “Energy-saving Stove” considering the need of specific customers. Energy-saving stove is suitable for use only in briquette. Due to the Rohingya refugee influx in Bangladesh, deforestation and destruction of hills have been taking place to a great extent in Cox’s Bazar area, and the negative impact of these is affecting the environment and its surrounding areas. To cope with the energy crisis of Rohingya refugees, the Bangladesh government has been providing LPG gas. Despite this, there is an acute energy crisis among the locals and refugees. To this end, BONDHU has taken a project to distribute Energy-saving stoves to the beneficiaries of the project in this area.
Target Benefciary: 1 lakh Rohingya families
Number of Stoves: 1 lakh.
Period of distribution: June 2022- March 2023.
Bangladesh Bondhu Foundation (BONDHU) has been working nationwide and it has offices in every district of the country. The working area of BONDHU varies according to the underlying problems of that area and the undertaken projects of the organization.
