This is the season when at Simoshi our colleague Masereka is busy like a bee. As part of our Project Activity obligations with the schools, we provide free annual maintenance to all institutional improved cook stoves (IICS).
Most schools will be starting the new school calendar year on the 4th of February. Therefore we are busy finalising with the last remaining schools.
Some of our participating schools have got their IICS entering their fourth year of operation. Because of the free annual maintenance we provide, the IICS are still performing as day one when the IICS were first deployed, with schools still making the same firewood savings like right from the start.
