Quote from the interview

What has been your favourite part of the programme and why?

“Working as a team to develop a Change Project has been very exciting because we noticed that it (the change project) picked the interest of a various key stakeholders due to its scope which spread beyond one organisation to countrywide. Regarding clean cooking, we see that the government has also taken initiative to develop a national strategy which will address the industry concerns and growth. So, it has been amazing, starting as Change Agents with a few organisations trying to ignite a discussion into topical issues in this space, we are now seeing our line ministry, the electricity regulator, and other key development partners getting involved.”
