Since late 2012 we have been able to garner great support for our life saving initiative to bring safer, more efficient cook stoves into the homes of impoverished families in the dry-corridor of Guatemala. Thanks in part to your support of our project through GlobalGiving, we have constructed a total of 45 stoves benefiting over 400 people.
Stove recipients continue to provide positive feedback on their new stoves. They have expressed huge relief from the health and economic burden caused by their existing stoves. The new stoves are already resulting in a significant reduction in the incidence of respiratory illness, and are creating huge time and cost savings for families. It is clear that the long term environmental, health, and economic impacts of these stoves will be even more significant.
We are looking forward to continued support of this project so more communities and families will benefit. As you consider your holiday giving, please keep in mind our work to create positive sustainable change for vulnerable children and families.
