Image removed.AIDG’s development of the Rocket Box stove was undertaken to alleviate the problems created by open fire cooking in rural Guatemala. The health, environmental, and economic costs of the traditional open-fire method of cooking have been widely documented. They include respiratory illnesses and accidental burns; the financial burden and time to buy or gather fuel; and de-forestation. AIDG’s work to design the Rocket Box has a context in the widespread initiatives by NGOs to promote efficient cook-stoves in Guatemala.
