Prakti CEO consults with Approvecho Research Center in Rwanda


Workshop attendees, Mouhsine, and the improved mud stove

In December 2010, Dr. Mouhsine Serrar, founder and CEO of Prakti Design, traveled to Huye, Rwanda, as a consultant to an Aprovecho Research Center (ARC) team working with CARE Rwanda.  Mouhsine’s objective was to train CARE Rwanda and other participants (including policy makers, stove project implementers and stove producers) involved in cook stove dissemination on improved stove design and the testing of improved cook stoves.  Mouhsine shared with the participants design techniques he has worked with in many countries to make a simple to build, mud only, skirted stove that closely followed the design principles taught to the group.  The building techniques in this design were also very easy to follow.
