In Hungary and the rest of Europe Roma people are one of the largest and most discriminated minorities and predominantly live in extreme poverty, geographically segregated.
Among many hardships poor housing conditions and lack of adequate heating during winter are some of the largest difficulties they face.
Eco-solutions can be cost effective and achievable with local resources and hence crucial for families with unpredictable incomes. Unfortunately few technological solutions are designed specifically for people living in extreme poverty in Europe.
Our work challenges this; we are developing affordable and efficient stoves, insulation and fuel programs in collaboration with local communities.
