Creating a virtuous cycle of sustainable health, environmental & social benefits across Africa, and beyond.
”surpressed demand” that is prolific in many developing nations such as inadequate levels of education, particularly impacting women, low overall incomes and poor infrastructure hinder access to basic human needs such as clean water and air. The World Bank and the UN consider that surmounting suppressed demand is one of the most vital impact levers to the advancement of developing countries.
Tubeho Neza is a first-of-it’s-kind Clean Development Mechanism project under the UN Framework Convention for Climate Change, operating in partnership with the Rwandan Government and our experienced partner on the ground. By delivering simple items to the poorest communities, we are overcoming the effects of suppressed demand.
Our Impact 2015-2019
VIRTUOUS CYCLE OF SUSTAINABILITY
Everything we have achieved so far shows us that education leads to high levels of device utilisation.
As device utilization increases, so too does Certified Emission Reduction (“CER”) generation and sale under the Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement (“ERPA”).
The more CERs generated and sold, the greater the resources available to produce additional devices.
The four stage virtuous cycle we create is self fulfilling and perpetual. The project is able to grow exponentially, create multiple revenue streams and in turn, virtuous cycles of sustainability.
Social & Environmental.
• Proven health impact: reduced child morbidity, mortality and significantly improved health through reduction of waterborne diseases and smoke inhalation.
• Overcoming traditional ‘suppressed demand’ barriers: low incomes are mitigated through
giving the devices away for free and challenges surrounding poor infrastructure are eased by the Rwandan Government providing logistics.
• Positive carbon footprint: reduced deforestation and CER generation.
• Strong gender angle: Empowering women and children to become educated through reduced time taken to collect firewood and water ultimately allowing them to make a greater financial contribution to society.
Economic & Commercial.
• Productivity & output: a healthier, more gender balanced, workforce increases GDP.
• Education & employment: implementation and training programs, future maintenance and manufacturing contracts.
• Commercial returns: aligned project impact with the ability to organically grow exponentially through the creation of a virtuous cycle of sustainability.

We have already distributed over 450,000 cookstoves + water filters to the poorest 30% of families in Rwanda, touching the lives of over 1.5 million Rwandans.
The impact of project Tubeho Neza
Inadequate and unsafe drinking water is the leading cause of diarrheal disease, which alone accounts for more than 500,000 deaths annually in children under 5 years in low-income countries (Pruss 2014).
SECTORS IN RWANDA SHOWING CONTROL AREAS, PHASE 2, AND PHASE 3
Environmental contamination at the household level is a major cause of death and disease, particularly among rural populations in low-income countries. Household air pollution (HAP) contributes to acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI), the leading cause of death in children under 5; among adults, HAP is a risk factor for ischaemic heart disease, stroke, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, trachea, bronchus, cerebrovascular disease and cataracts (Gordon 2014; Smith 2014; Clark & Peel 2014).
Collectively, pneumonia and diarrhoea are responsible for an estimated 6.9 million deaths annually (The Lancet Diarrhoea and Pneumonia Interventions Study Group 2012). In Rwanda, 99.0% of rural householders cook with biomass, mainly on open three-stone fires, and only 2.2% have water on their premises (Rwanda DHS).
INTERVENTION AND PILOT STUDIES
The intervention consists of the free distribution of cookstoves and water filters and the continued monitoring and promotion of their use. The cookstove is the EcoZoomTM Dura, a “rocket stove” that concentrates the combustion process while channeling airflow to more completely burn the combustible fuel provided.
The water filter is the Vestergaard Frandsen Lifestraw FamilyTM 2.0, a point-of-use microbial water treatment system designed for household use in resource-limited settings. The unit treats up to 18,000 liters of water, which can supply a family of five with clean drinking water for three to five years, and exceeds the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “highly protective” standard for household water treatment technologies (Clasen 2009). The intervention is promoted by initial and regular follow-up visits by community health workers (CHWs) hired by the MOH that are trained and compensated for their time on the project by the implementer.
