This week we have deployed institutional improved cook stoves (IICS) for the KCCA Military Police primary school. This school of 630 children is located inside the military barracks. As such, the kitchen is shared where food is cooked for the children, the hospital, the prison and the military.
This is a huge space that is using a mix of traditional 3-stone fires and old stoves that were once supposed to be improved, but with time and no maintenance in place, they ended up all broken and consuming as much firewood as a traditional one.
We conducted training to all military officers responsible for the cooking activities. Despite having twoIICS now for the cooking needs of the primary school, we still hope that all of the cooking in the military barracks will be also made with new IICS as the Commander will be monitoring Simoshi’s performance in the coming months.
