Trees, Water & People’s efforts in Haiti continue to move forward with the help of our partners from the International Lifeline Fund who have begun distributing more fuel-efficient Rocket stoves to families displaced by the earthquake. Interactive trainings are being held daily for groups of 20 women - cooking a communal meal, incorporating environmental education, and singing Haitian songs that speak of unity, hard work, and care for the earth. We have cultivated additional partnerships with several local and international organizations that are helping to spread a common message of the importance of environmental stewardship in vulnerable times. Trees, Water & People looks forward to building a resilient national industry for forest-saving, life-changing stoves in Haiti.
