IL's Caterpillar Foundation just gave $1 million to UN's cookstove initiative, which helps ensure clean cooking fuel for some of world's neediest.

"This kind of problem—big and deadly, but solvable—is exactly the sort of challenge that appeals to the Caterpillar Foundation, which recently awarded $1 million to the United Nations Foundation in support of its Clean Cookstove Initiative. The funds will support work in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda, and are part of a larger, $11 million give for work in Africa announced earlier this month. The United Nations Foundation estimates that of the 3 billion people currently cooking with 'dirty' fuel, approximately 1.9 million will be dead within the next year as a result of prolonged exposure to cooking smoke." -- Sue-Lynn Moses, Inside Philanthropy
