What people are saying
I pay school fees for my child in secondary school. When we use the Chitetezo stove, we save the environment.
Once you are sick, you can move the Chitetezo stove and put it nearby.
It is portable and it can be used to keep you warm.
If this village can plant 10 trees and prune 5 trees, the whole village can use the wood for one month, as the wood required for a Chitetezo Mbaula is not a lot.
