1,500 Clean Cookstoves for Haitian Families

Jun 12, 2013

Thank you! You have helped to fully fund our project!

Thank you!
Thank you!

Hello Friends,

You are awesome! With your help, the "1,500 Clean Cookstoves for Haitian Families" project has been funded. We are so grateful for your generosity. Your donations have helped thousands of people in Haiti reduce their monthly fuel costs, improve their health, and reduce environmental degradation.

In a country where 90% of the population is dependent on charcoal to cook every meal, a stove like the Zanmi Pye Bwa ("Friend of the Trees") is truly a life-changing technology. This amazing clean cookstove reduces fuel consumption by 40% every time it is used! Plus, it is built by Haitians using all local materials. You have helped us bring this stove to so many families in need and, at the same time, helped to create jobs and economic activity.

We hope you will stay connected to our work and continue to follow the progress of this program. You can connect with us in many ways:

Thank you again for making this project a success and helping to bring hope to our friends in Haiti.

Kind regards,

 Sebastian Africano
