Aspiring young chefs are put to the ultimate challenge in Hell’s Kitchen, a reality television competition starring world-renowned chef, Gordon Ramsay. Chef Ramsay demands quality, and the intensity of the challenges is beyond anything the contestants can ever imagine.

But if you think Ramsey’s kitchen is “hell”, you haven’t seen anything yet! What Ramsey and company need is a trip to northern Uganda, or just about any other third world country to see what the average woman goes through every day just to put food on the table…that is if they even have a table!

Days begin at the crack of dawn when make a fire in between 3 stones and place their cooking pot them to cook their breakfast. There is enough smoke from this cooking method to choke up a chain smoker!

More than 98 % of Ugandans rely on charcoal or firewood as their fuel source for cooking. But there have been problems from the severe deforestation in Uganda due to coal consumption and the unhealthy amounts of smoke emissions. Health issues are a grave concern, especially for the women and small children who spend so much time in the tiny mud huts inhaling the dangerous smoke.

After much research, we came across the Ugastove manufactured in Uganda. It seemed to be an answer to both problems. It has been tested by organizations in both the United States and Switzerland for fuel consumption and emissions. It passed with flying colors after rigorous tests proved that it used about 50% less charcoal or wood and cut dangerous emissions down to practically nothing because of the highly efficient way it burned the charcoal and/or wood.

Reduced charcoal consumption, subsequent financial savings and health benefits for families using Ugastoves have proven to be substantial. According to tests and reports, an average-sized family using a Ugastove can expect to save about $80 USD per year. Not bad when the average annual income is about $400!


Ladies holding the new pots…notice the old cooking method in front of them, oh my!

We were sold! So, we purchased 100 Ugastoves directly from the factory in Kampala. They sold them to us at the wholesale price and delivered them to Gulu for free, which is about a 6 hour drive. We were thrilled…and so were the needy families who got the stoves.

“All of the ladies absolutely love their new stove,” Evelyn said when we spoke to her recently. “This is a far better stove than the ones we have used in the past,” she went on to say. “Each of the ladies has been going through a 120 lb sack of charcoal every month, but the sack they bought this month is not even half empty. They told me to tell you, “Thanks for everything you did to help us when you were here. But especially thank you for the new Ugastove! It is making our lives so much easier and is saving us so much money.”

Ladies, here is your chance to buy a new stove for a sister in Uganda.

Make a generous donation on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29th (or anytime that week) . Every $10 donation buys a new stove. For that price, why not get some of your friends together and buy a truckload! Let’s end “Hell’s Kitchen” in Uganda and save the lives of these cooking mamas and their vulnerable kids.

    the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and
    let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy that I found this during my search for
    something regarding this.
