We are a small foundation with a hands-on approach; we work closely with management teams on the ground to help build businesses, formulate strategy, and improve organizational structure. We collaborate with fellow funders and implementers — including governments, NGOs, and for-profit organizations — to share lessons-learned and to bring the most promising cooking solutions to the greatest number of households.

We are registered and based in Massachusetts. Currently we are working in Africa
