cookstove producers also attended to showcase their products. The meeting sought to compare improved institutional cookstoves with traditional ones, and shape decisions made by school heads.
heads of schools - from Gayaza High School and Buddo Secondary School have already installed the cookstoves - rallied their counterparts to do the same. They shared their success stories and invited school heads to visit them and get first-hand experience using the stoves.
