The Dutch organization Clean Cooking Revolution presented their plans to make the Mimi Moto Clean Cooking Stove available for the people who need it the most. With both ‘local heroes’ and local master chefs, the team tries to make the Mimi Moto Cooking Stove affordable for people living in less developed environments. The team is currently focusing on the people living in Kayamandi (Stellenbosch) and Philippi (Cape Town).
The award winning clean stove is an alternative for the dangerous and very unhealthy indoor cooking with paraffin. The product is made affordable by selling it for one-third of the price; the rest is financed with help of funders. Beside other methods, the team does this through an online network of ambassadors. The ambassadors give their support by investing some or their time and inspiration to spread the word and find funders from their home country or from anywhere else in the world.
The Clean Cooking Revolution team gave us an interesting presentation about both the ‘business model’ of this social project and the working of the product itself.
