Verst Carbon Partners with Nyalore Impact to Scale Clean Cooking in Rural Kenya: Part 1

Nyalore and Verst Carbon Teams

As we start off this week, we are thrilled to share with you the inspiring story of our partnership with Nyalore Impact, a trailblazing social enterprise that is transforming the landscape of clean cooking solutions in Kenya and beyond. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our mission to drive sustainable development and combat climate change through innovative technology and community-centric initiatives.

Nyalore Impact was founded in 2016 by the visionary entrepreneur, Awuor Dorothy Otieno, who recognized the urgent need to address the global climate crisis through practical and impactful solutions. Driven by a deep commitment to environmental sustainability and social empowerment, Dorothy set out to tackle one of the most pressing challenges faced by marginalized communities in Kenya: access to clean and efficient cooking methods.

In many rural households, traditional cooking practices rely heavily on biomass fuels such as wood, charcoal, and animal dung. These methods not only contribute to deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions but also pose severe health risks due to indoor air pollution. Nyalore Impact emerged as a beacon of hope, offering a path towards a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future.

A Mission to Revolutionize Clean Cooking

At the heart of Nyalore Impact’s mission is the belief that access to clean cooking solutions is not just an environmental imperative but also a fundamental human right. The company’s primary goal is to revolutionize cooking in low-income households and marginalized communities by providing cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and sustainable cooking solutions that improve overall health, minimize negative environmental impacts, and promote economic growth.

To achieve this ambitious vision, Nyalore Impact specializes in the sale and distribution of electric cookstoves, with a particular focus on the innovative Electric Pressure Cookers (EPCs). These cutting-edge appliances offer a host of benefits, including:

Making a Tangible Impact

Since its inception, Nyalore Impact has made remarkable strides in bringing clean cooking solutions to underserved communities. To date, the company has successfully provided over 50,000 rural Kenyan households with clean cookstoves, directly improving the lives of countless individuals and families.

The impact of their work extends far beyond the immediate benefits of clean cooking. By reducing indoor air pollution and the associated health risks, Nyalore Impact has contributed to a significant decrease in respiratory illnesses among women and children, who are often disproportionately affected by the adverse effects of traditional cooking methods.

Moreover, the company’s initiatives have supported local efforts to conserve the environment and combat deforestation. By offering sustainable alternatives to biomass fuels, Nyalore Impact has alleviated the pressure on Kenya’s forests, allowing for the regeneration of valuable ecosystems and the preservation of biodiversity.

A Partnership Forged in Shared Values

Our paths crossed with Nyalore Impact during the transformative Pika na Power event organized by Kenya Power and Lighting company (KPLC) in collaboration with MECS. This event brought together clean cooking and carbon market experts with stakeholders from various sectors to explore sustainable energy solutions and address the pressing environmental challenges of our time.

As we engaged in thought-provoking discussions and witnessed the groundbreaking work being done by organizations like Nyalore Impact, we were deeply inspired by their commitment to driving positive change through technology and community empowerment. Impressed by our own dedication to technological excellence and environmental integrity, Dorothy reached out to Verst Carbon in February, setting the stage for a partnership that would soon prove to be a first of its kind in the clean cooking sector.

Looking Ahead: A Bold Vision

As we embark on this exciting journey together, Nyalore Impact and Verst Carbon have set our sights on an ambitious goal: to distribute 10,000 Electric Pressure Cookers (EPCs) to households in rural Kenya by the end of this year. This bold vision represents a significant step forward in our mission to expand access to clean cooking solutions and create lasting, positive change in the lives of countless individuals and communities.

Through our combined expertise, technological innovation, and deep understanding of local contexts, we are confident in our ability to achieve this target and lay the foundation for even greater impact in the years to come. By leveraging cutting-edge digital solutions and fostering strong partnerships with key stakeholders, we aim to create a scalable and sustainable model for the widespread adoption of clean cooking technologies.
