Nenu’s Story

Nenu is a social impact enterprise enabling access to clean and affordable cooking solution to households in Africa.

In 2014, Chris (our founder & CEO) noticed with utmost dismay the disappearance of the little forest that once surrounded his village. As kids, Chris and his friends hunted Squirrels and rabbits in this forest during holidays. But today, that beautiful forest that once offered hunting space to kids in his village has been completely destroyed for the production of firewood and charcoal.

Globally, about three billion people depend on polluting, open fires and inefficient cook stoves to cook their food, harming health, the climate, and the environment. And in 2016, Nenu launched its energy efficient charcoal cook stove to address the cooking needs of households in Africa.

Our cook stoves are produced (at our production facility in Nigeria) using locally sourced materials and a vertical integration approach to deliver highly affordable stoves to underserved households who needs it the most. Currently, we are operating in Nigeria but by 2030 we expect to expand to 10 additional countries in Africa. Partner with Nenu to expand access to clean and affordable cooking solutions to people in Africa.
