Lamisi Sandow, 47, lives with her husband and their 6 children in Northern Ghana. Since 2012, she has build over 150 improved cook stoves, that use less wood and therefore help decrease the cutting down of trees in her region. And “they cook faster and are more convenient to use.”
In 2012, Lamisi received a training in the construction of improved cook stoves, as part of Oxfam’s programs to fight climate change. From domestic stoves, she then went on to making stoves for community centres and restaurants.
She’s now become a trainer and teaches other women to build these stoves, spreading the knowledge and the fight for the environment.
