Director: Rodney Rascona
Director of Photography: Scott Shepard
Producer - Phil Tidy
Writer: Russ Haan
Editor - Warren Meneely
Gaffer: Chuck Linkes
Client: United Nations Foundation and The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves

Just one in a seriesof short films about the the need and effect of clean burning cookstoves on behalf of The United Nations Foundation.  These films debuted at The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
     In sub-Saharan Africa, 609 million people cook over an open fire, and women can spend up to 20 hours per week collecting fuel to cook their family meals. Before Sarah was introduced to a clean cookstove, she was no different. The long hours she spent in search of cooking fuel in northern Kenya left her little time to do anything else.

Watch this video and see how a clean cookstove has given Sarah more time to help her children with schoolwork and the confidence set up her own shop.
