About Prosy

After studying industrial ceramics at school and working for an organization that builds stoves, Prosy Ssebunya decided to use her expertise to benefit her community and the environment. As Founder and Executive Director of Promoters of Efficient Technology for Sustainable Development (PETSD), Prosy trains people to build efficient clay stoves. Not only does this generate income for the individuals through sales, it also decreases their firewood or coal consumption, thereby decreasing their basic cost of living and helping conserve the environment. PETSD has trained over 5,000 people in Uganda with simple energy-saving skills and technologies, many of whom have been able to put their children through school or start their own businesses as a result of this training.
