BlueMatch, Christ University CSA (Bengaluru, India) and Chetana Cooperative, entered into a partnership focusing on the participation of women in introducing BlueMatch Pragathi EcoStoves in their communities. Women from rural villages will play a leading role and will be trained in the production and distribution of smokeless cook stoves and biomass pellets.
The first BlueMatch Pragathi EcoStove assembly unit was inaugurated by the women of the Chetana Cooperative on Friday May 12th, 2017. The partnership is based on the aim to improve the health of women and children in rural areas and to provide long-term employment and development opportunities. Additionally, it offers a platform to students enabling them to participate in supporting projects and to do further scientific research.
