Approach, Location & Projects
Vita’s service delivery model is without exception community–led. The model is equitable and inclusive ensuring that no household is left behind. This is based on a methodology developed by Dr Kamal Kar, now used in over 64 countries. We employ a community total led adoption for improved cookstove. Our ambition is 100% adoption rate for fuel-efficient cookstoves.
The community-led model has advantages over government and commercial service delivery by providing affordable and inclusive energy and water which is made possible by the carbon finance. Additionally, the stoves are made by community producer groups, thereby generating substantial local revenue.
