Every monthly donation helps more women like Savitha become eco-friendly
Savitha is a farmer in a small village in Karnataka. Savitha and her family have traditionally been using a chulha with a clay vessel to heat water for household purposes. This method requires about 16 cartloads of firewood annually.
Not only is this high on manpower requirements but is also a burden on the natural resources of the village. It was here that TRDC intervened and provided Savitha with an eco-friendly chulha. The firewood consumption has come down by 50%, with biowaste stepping in as an alternate fuel source.
Savitha and her family, now have hot water throughout the day, with no additional burden on the village's natural resources.
