    Energy efficient stoves at Lake Atitlan
    By - Alton Germain - GVI Project Manager
    As the reforestation rates continue to be alarming in Guatemala, and the numbers of cases of illnesses from indoor smoke inhalation and burns are on the increase, the stoves we build are becoming even more important. They can save up to 75% of firewood usage, reduce smoke in the home completely and due to their design,...

      amigodesam I thank GOD for all the Angels he has sent to Guatemala to improve the lives of all those human beings that have endured so much and that have so little to get by.

    After two years since we started this program, families are already seeing reductions in their daily wood consumption, by between 50 and 75%...burns and lung illnesses also appear to be dropping, with fewer family members with rasping coughs.

    More happy trees going into 2010
    By - Dom Williams - Director
    70 stoves were built in Guatemala this year, meaning that 70 more families will be able to cook without smoke and many more trees can look forward to still being in the ground in 2010, as less firewood is needed for the new stoves. To help this along, we also planted 10,000 trees. There are still 40 stoves to be built in...

    The importance of stoves
    By - Dom Williams - Project director
    The stoves we are building in the community not only perform their main function: cooking. There is so much more; they use less firewood, they reduce smoke inhilation to almost zero and they are built so small children cannot fall into the fire or burn themselves on boiling water. We plan to build 50 stoves in 2009 to add...
