Two weeks ago, Stiaan, Danone’s Quality Director in South Africa came to Kenya to assist Mercy, Quality Manager of the Hifadhi project, on the quality control and monitoring of the cookstoves distributed to the women of the Embu district.
Together, they visited families, interviewed the women using the cookstoves, visited the workshop where the stoves are made by local artisans, but also sat down and worked… For both of them, it was a very rich learning experience. Check out Stiaan’s story in the video below !
