The project is initially focused on the replacement of traditional charcoal stoves with very low efficiencies (locally known as “coal-pots”) with an improved stove, known as the Gyapa. The Gyapa differs from the coalpot by virtue of having a combustion chamber which is heavily insulated with a ceramic liner. Three sizes of charcoal-burning Gyapa are distributed by the project.
