Congratulations to the UWCEA students selected as Young Aurora finalists. Young Aurora encourages, showcases and supports student-driven projects addressing concrete humanitarian issues and offering solutions through innovative and sustainable approaches.
This year, fourteen projects were submitted for the Young Aurora prize by student teams from across twelve UWC schools and colleges and the African Leadership Academy. They address a wide range of issues, from migration to menstrual health and from civic engagement among the young to community support for the elderly.
Propelled forward by the aim of reducing and eliminating the damaging effects of smoke experienced in the kitchens of indigenous communities of the Chagga and Maasai tribes in Moshi, Kilimanjaro, the Smokeless Kitchens team from UWCEA have set out a plan to sustainably source low cost, high quality smokeless stoves that are operated using environmentally friendly fuel.The impact potential of this project has been greatly praised by the panel for addressing the root causes of a critical humanitarian issue.
