Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves Spotlights Two Peer Leaders from World Education Ghana program

October 12, 2017

World Education Ghana’s Integrated School Project on Clean Cooking Energy (INSPOCCE), supported by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, has educated 2,000 junior high school students, 60 teachers and school administrators, and more than 18,000 community members in the Ga West Municipality, Amasaman on the dangers and environmental hazards of cooking over open fires and the existence of cleaner, more efficient cooking solutions.

The project has also raised awareness about the negative effects of traditional cooking practices on Ghanaian youth, and given girls and boys skills to help them transition their own households to cleaner cooking solutions.

The two female leaders highlighted by The Alliance for Making a difference in a community - one family, one cookstove at a time are Priscilla Asare and Fosua Obeng Amoako.
