Carleton University students Clarissa Garcia (BCom/20) and Tatum Deitrich (BID/20) explain how the Moshi Inje Stove works to community members in Longido, Tanzania.

For the past six years, Carleton’s Sprott School of Business and Faculty of Engineering and Design participated in a multidisciplinary initiative—From Buckets to Rainbarrels—where students from different departments travel to Longido, a rural village in Tanzania, and create projects to address challenges for health, agriculture, and waste management.

Each project was created through a collaborative yearlong course between students from Industrial Design, Business, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Food Science.

The Moshi Inje Stove was designed in collaboration with Maasai women by recent industrial design graduate Tatum Dietrich for her fourth year capstone project under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Field. This system creates a safe cooking environment by redirecting smoke out of the Maasai’s home under the wall rather than through the roof. Tatum’s business partner in the project was recent business graduate Clarissa Garcia.
