Smoke Gets In her Eyes

The other evening I was at an ELAW reception for environmental attorneys from 40 countries.  It was a small group, and I met a nice student from Kenya.  She asked me what I did, and I explained that StoveTeam worked to replace smoky open fires with clean cookstoves.  Her response….

“Oh!  That’s why I don’t cook!  It’s too painful for me, and the smoke gets in my eyes.  I hate it!  I herd the cows, and make my brother cook as then my eyes don’t hurt!”
