In this interview, the CEO; Doris McDaniels shares their activities in the clean cookstoves sector. Give us a brief introduction about your organisation. What are the objectives of your organisation?

Kerosene happens to be the main available cooking solution in the past 40 decades. The insurgency in the Niger Delta has rendered the Creeks unsafe for women to make trips to the mangrove forest to access firewood for cooking, which was the traditional fuel for cooking. The 70s revolutionize kerosene usage until the development of illegal adulterated kerosene in 2005, killing people in scores. Introduction of Clean Cook Stoves by Midas in 2014...
