The TURBO Revolution 

In August, BURN partnered with one of East Africa’s leading PAYG solar home providers to conduct a field pilot of our forced-draft TURBO stove. Joash Ngetich, one of the pilot participants, said “Unlike other firewood stoves that produce a lot of smoke and consume lots of wood, which negatively impact the environment; the Kuniokoa TURBO is the best jiko I have ever used!"
