Project story

“Rich people use gas for cooking and since I started using biogas, I also feel rich. I used to leave at 8 a.m. to get firewood and not get home until around noon. It took me about 16 hours per week to get firewood, because I had to carry the whole bundle of wood home on my head. Then I also had to chop it into smaller pieces so I could use it. If I didn’t have to get wood, I started in the morning I started cooking at 6 a.m. and was not ready until 9 a.m. Now I cook much faster and my children are at school on time. I can also work now. I am really very grateful.”

In 2012, ADATS and BCS installed a biogas plant at Narsamma’s house. ADATS and BCS are local partners of FairClimateFund in the Chik Ballapur region of India.
