What we should know about you

Questions answered by Mohammad Aleysa, Head Manager
1. Imagine yourselves 5 years ago in comparison to the situation you are in today. Which achievements surprise you the most?

What surprised me was the high demand and acceptance of such low-emission stoves despite the widening of open-wood fire which is a traditional cooking method. The high demand is especially noticed in the frame of small communities such as kindergartens, schools, small villages, and small entrepreneurs in developing countries.

2. What is the best thing about being a member of empowering people. Network?

Being a member of empowering people. Network helps in information sharing. It also helps in reaching out to concerned people faster especially in the developing countries where the use of such new technologies is very needed and indoor pollution is a big problem.

3. Did you always want to become a social entrepreneur?

Being involved in a social business gives your work special meaning since you help people to solve their problems in a simple way.
