My Big Idea

My Big Idea

Irish student Tara McGrath has pioneered the development of a fuel efficient stove which she wants to field test in southern Ethiopia with ngo Self Help Africa. Chronic respiratory infections are caused by breathing in wood smoke from indoor cooking fires and Tara’s stove could help reduce this problem as well as the burden on the environment.
