About

Resolution Fellows Maxwell Chinnah and Godwin Attigah have designed a new patent-pending clean cookstove that reduces smoke pollution by 90% and generates electricity from heat, making it 50% more fuel efficient than a regular charcoal stove. The stoves will be deployed in the Ashanti Region of Ghana by local youth, who will be trained to build and maintain the cookers. Terraoak will reduce the time spent on gathering firewood, minimize the health risks associated with indoor charcoal and wood cooking fires, and provide employment opportunities for community members.
