Social Impact

Sunken Ltd’s Energy Saving Cookstove was born after learning of the open-fire traditional method of cooking practiced in the Kakuma region, Kenya. This type of cooking method exacerbated respiratory diseases among the community of refugees and locals.

Before Sunken Ltd’s venture in the Kakuma region, there was no commercially run cookstove production plant in the entire county of Turkana. Three years in, today we have employed 14 refugees and host community members, and trained over 60 youth in the process.

Sunken Ltd has improved its production capacity since 2018 from 150 units/month to 700 units/month, currently.

The company has a distribution network of 114 last-mile distributors as of today, spread across Kakuma, which has a population of 300,000.

We measure our impact through job creation opportunities, sales, and market reach. In this financial year starting January 2022, we have distributed 5,757 cookstoves and over 18,000 units overall since 2018.

Future Plans

The plan is to enhance our Energy Saving Cookstove’s capabilities over the next five years, and automate our production process to maintain standardization and expand our reach outside Turkana county by 2026.
