70% of Kenya’s energy comes from wood fuels. This demand is unsustainable, it is destroying Kenya’s forests and exacerbating the local impacts of climate change.

Acacia Innovations makes modern clean cooking affordable for schools in Kenya, through an innovative subscription model which allows schools to get a highly discounted affordable clean cookstove if they sign a contract to purchase Kuni Safi biomass briquettes (an alternative to firewood made of sugarcane waste). They have benefited 75,000 students in over 150 schools with a smokefree learning experience and lower costs for school meals.
