Why Design Now?

February 4th, 2010

We’re delighted to hear Mohamed Majzoub, Practical Action’s Country Director from Sudan, is taking part in Design Triennial, Why Design Now?  with the improved clay stove.

This stove has made a huge impact of the lives of women who daily have to cope with the time-consuming and often dangerous task of collecting firewood. Now, through a combination of using these stoves and fuel saving tips fuel use has been cut in half and the number of violent incidence against women has been significantly reduced.

It’s amazing to realise that a simple technology can change women’s lives so much. We’re hoping that the visitors to Why Design Now? will be equally impressed.
