Meet Nalene

Project story
01 Jan 2018

Besides her family duties, Nalene has her own sewing machine for the past six months, through which she earns some extra money by stitching sari blouses and sari dresses. “Because I now cook on biogas, I can finish it very quickly and I have a lot of time to sew my blouses and dresses. Cooking with biogas is a piece of cake compared to cooking with wood,” says Nalene. “No more blowing to fan the fire, no more watery eyes and I don’t have to stay there all the time.”

Nalene (19) lives with her parents, sisters and her aunt and uncle’s family in the village of Mallagurki. Since she finished her education, her job is to take care of the family meals.
