Almost two decennia ago the Government of Ghana started promoting the use of alternative media to stop the extensive use of wood -or charcoal- for daily cooking of foods.

This was extremely necessary! UNIDO advised that the 4 million households in Ghana might have consumed all trees available in Ghana in the coming generation.

A very realistic alternative was the use of LPGas, a residue from the Ghana Oil Refinery.
A donor country supported the Ghana Government with the introduction. However, for various reasons, the use of gas was -and still is- not adopted by the housewives as expected.
A search was carried out to find the bottlenecks and dilemmas. A new approach was designed and Thomas Aquinas Foundation was established to execute the project.
