Saroj was one of the first women in her village in India to learn about the smokeless cook stove. The stove gives women 12-16 hours back each week, time that is traditionally spent gathering wood. Through the Tripti Project, a program supported by your gifts to ELCA World Hunger, Saroj is receiving education and training on nutrition, sanitation and hygiene, and safe cooking practices. Meet Saroj and hear more about how the project is using education to meet the unique needs of this village and helping to make in-home smokeless stoves a reality .
