Ensure Comfort for Grandmothers

Half Way There!

Fuel Efficient Stoves are the best way to go for our grandmothers in Lusaka, Zambia. If you can picture what buying a stove does for these elderly women you would not want to miss out on the opportunity. This winter in particular the grandmothers of Chikumbuso have reaped the benefit of having a fuel efficient stove. The winter season brings with it a chill to the bones of many people living in the slum where the cement walls guard the cold and the wind whips through the leaks in the ceiling. But for our grandmothers and their grandchildren the cold is no longer feared because these stoves work indoors as well as outside. Not only do these stoves cook meals using a few little twigs instead of buckets of charcoal but they also heat water and then stay warm enough to keep the house heated through the cooler evenings. Each and every one of our grandmothers who has a stove considers herself blessed to be a part of Chikumbuso where our supporters care to make a difference in the individual's life.

We are half way to our fundraising goal and we are thankful to those who have supported us to date.

Please help us to make our goal and give each and every grandmother a stove.

Can We Do It?  Joyce thinks so!
