The Minister of Environment Dr. Jeanne d’Arc Mujawamariya and other leaders have officiated the launch of LPG clean cooking systems in 20 schools as part of the Green Amayaga Project.
The LPG systems will reduce emissions and promote a healthy environment in schools and the wider community.
School Leaders from ESPANYA, College du Christ Roi and GS Mater Dei say the program has reduced wood and time used for cooking.
The Mayor of Nyanza District thanked those involved and said the program will reduce costs, labor and time while increasing cleanliness and protecting the environment.
In her remarks, Minister Mujawamariya said that the use of LPGs for cooking is part of Rwanda’s NDCs to become a carbon neutral economy by 2050.
She empasized the fact that even if some international organisations don’t recognise the use of gas as a green initiative, LPGs are clean and contribute in fighting against forests degradation.
According to Scientists, LPGs have proven to be an efficient and clean alternative to traditional fuels that contribute to the degradation of forests.
By choosing to use LPGs in our daily lives, institutions are not only reducing carbon footprint but also actively participating in the fight against deforestation.
Experts urge that the benefits of using LPGs extend beyond just environmental benefits, as they have proven to be a cost-effective and safe fuel option for households and industries alike. It is time that schools prioritize the use of LPGs and take a step towards a cleaner and greener future.
