CBR Network has chosen SAMUHA's villages in Koppal district for the Smokeless Chulha Seva Abhiyan. 

A donation of Rs 2200 will help a household

  • receive the Chulika cookstove, and
  • save 50% in firewood
  • reduce indoor air pollution by 80%,
  • save considerably in health costs towards eye and chest infections, and
  • save a ton of CO2 as their contribution to Climate Change.

Rs 2200 includes the cost of the stove, delivery, orientation of benefiting households to use the stove properly, promotion costs, overheads and the monitoring of the stove usage.

10% of this amount will be kept aside as a Disability Fund that will be administered by CBR Network

You can gift Rs 2200 or as much as you would like. Every unit of Rs 2200 will ensure that your name is entered on the placemarker of the house that received your gift. Fractions will be pooled and will be used to gift stoves: households who recieve a pooled stove will have a different coloured placemarker. And you will be able to read your name on the Village Placemarker rather than on an individual household.    

You can gift an improved Chulika stove through the following ways:
