Helping address Tanzania's energy crisis, through US Department of Agriculture Food for Progress funding, PFD is manufacturing and distributing a promising bio energy cook stove to alleviate the environmental and economic burden of using non-renewable fuel sources. Much of Tanzania is dependent on use of wood and charcoal as the primary energy source.
