What is the problem the social business is solving?
Many refugees living in Uganda lack access to fuel for cooking and heating. A lack of access to energy exacerbates the challenges of living in refugee settlements often leading to conflict and poor health.
How does the social business solve this problem?
Adapt Plus’ aims to improve the lives of refugees in settlements and host communities by tackling the problem of energy supply. Adapt plus produces energy-saving cook stoves and fuel briquettes, ensuring a reliable supply of equipment and fuel for cooking and heating.
How does the social business generate revenue?
ADAPT Plus employs refugees to manufacture briquettes and stoves, supplying community depots managed by Refugee Savings & Credit Organizations. The stoves and briquettes are then sold on to community retailers and directly to households in the local community.
