1,500 Clean Cookstoves for Haitian Families

The Two-Burner Zanmi Pye Bwa ("Friend of the Trees") Clean Cookstove

Our Haiti team continues to innovate in response to feedback from cookstove users, who continually request a second clean cookstove to replace both traditional stoves in their household kitchens.  Like most homes around the world, people use two burners simultaneously to prepare various parts of their meal at once.  Users with larger families also commonly request a larger version of our stove for bigger pots.  The two-burner stove solves both these issues at once, providing families two burners in one stove body that is 30% more efficient than a traditional cookstove.

Please take a couple minutes to watch the attached video about the Haiti cookstove project.

We greatly appreciate your caring and support.  Without your generosity, projects like this would be impossible to complete. Thank you!
