Abuja, Nigeria, March 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Gas to Health Initiative (GTHI), an NGO dedicated to promoting the use of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as the main domestic fuel source for Nigerians, has recently unveiled its new website (http://www.gastohealth.org.ng/
). The announcement coincides with the start of the organisation’s third year of activity.
Commenting on this milestone, Prince Haruna Momoh
, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of our new website. I hope that it will prove to be a valuable resource for people interested in making the switch to LPG, the cleanest and most efficient energy source available on the market. Together, we can continue to improve the quality of life for Nigerians in both rural and urban areas.”
The new website was redesigned with user functionality in mind and it will further GTHI’s goals by providing an easily accessible platform for educational materials that highlight the benefits of LPG. It will additionally help realise some key GTHI objectives for 2016. These include a commitment to achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDG). Through activities such as distributing gas cylinders to Mama Put food vendors, they help to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
GTHI was founded by Prince Haruna Momoh alongside other stakeholders in the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry. Alhaji Sani Dangote
is the President, while Chief Alexander Chika Okafor and Engr. (Mrs) Betty Ugona are the Vice-President and Secretary GTHI Board of Trustees respectively. Since its inception, the NGO has furthered the cause of cleaner and safer homes for Nigerian citizens through the widespread use of LPG as a domestic fuel. During GTHI’s first year of activity, the overall consumption of LPG in Nigeria has increased from 250,000 metric tons to 300,000 metric tons per year, proving that a change for the better is possible.
About the Gas to Health Initiative: The Gas to Health Initiative is a non-profit, non-governmental, non-political organisation. It aims to promote LPG as an alternative to traditional cooking fuels such as kerosene and firewood. To this end, it provides educational resources as well as outreach campaigns geared towards those who are primarily affected by the use of unsafe domestic fuels. GTHI works tirelessly to bridge the gap between governmental bodies and private corporations in order to ensure a larger market share for LPG.
