Happy Dad's day. Here is heartwarming news from the ground in Zambia. Last month, along with our partner Greenway Appliances, we launched an innovative project that provides clean cooking stoves to vulnerable women. These stoves have a minimal carbon footprint, are almost smoke free, use less fuel, and cook food faster. The stoves were pre-tested for smoke generation, fuel availability/cost, local recipes, cooking speed, and ease of use before the project was launched.

Goals of this project are to improve the health of families via less smoke inhalation, save money on fuel, and income generation. At present, most families enrolled in our micro loans program have received these stoves. Recipients love their new stoves as they are easy to use, smoke generation is almost nil, and they are saving money on fuel bills.

Beneficiaries: 10,000 vulnerable women living in impoverished neighborhoods. 

The provision of stoves is in addition to loans to start businesses, business training, and ongoing monitoring provided to 400 women enrolled in this program.

Thanks for empowering vulnerable women impacted by HIV in Zambia.

Goals of this project are to improve the health of families via less smoke inhalation, save money on fuel, and income generation. At present, all families enrolled in our pediatric HIV care program have received these stoves. Recipients love their new stoves as they are smoke free, are easy to use, and families are saving money on fuel bills.

Beneficiaries: 10,000 vulnerable families living in impoverished neighborhoods. 

The provision of stoves is in addition to food, medicines and a comprehensive package of life saving health care services provided to 450 HIV+ children and their families enrolled in this program.

Thanks for giving the gift of health to vulnerable families in Zambia.

Happy Dad's day. Here is heartwarming news from the ground in Zambia. Last month, along with our partner Greenway Appliances, we launched an innovative project that provides clean cooking stoves to vulnerable families. These stoves have a minimal carbon footprint, are almost smoke free, use less fuel, and cook food faster. The stoves were pre-tested for smoke generation, fuel availability/cost, local recipes, cooking speed, and ease of use before the project was launched. 

Goals of this project are to improve the health of families, save money on fuel, and income generation. So far, recipients love their new stoves as they are easy to use, smoke generation is almost nil, and they are saving money on fuel costs.

Beneficiaries: 10,000 vulnerable families living in impoverished neighborhoods. 

Due to COVID-19, “Safe Park” was cancelled around March 20. However, we have started providing stoves to families who are enrolled in our “Safe Park” program.

Thank you for giving the gift of play to vulnerable children in Zambia.
