Studies have revealed that nearly 815 million people in India which is over two-thirds of all households in the country rely on traditional biomass for cooking such as wood, coal, dung cake while several others lack access to a proper kitchen and cooking facilities as well. Further more, these cooking ways also adversely affect the health of individuals while the smoke and soot also result in various respiratory, cardiovascular and eye-related problems, especially among women and children.

SKG Sangha has helped to remedy this issue by providing at least 450,000 households with indoor air pollution-free energy source for cooking and water heating purpose which has not only helped improve overall health but has also helped in reducing deforestation, time savings and reducing harmful emissions of black carbon, a significant short-term contributor to climate change which further leads to forest degradation.
