Stove Construction Continues!

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year! We are excited to report that we installed 29 improved cookstoves (including at Juana M.’s house) through the end of 2014. Due to your generous and continued support these families are starting 2015 with smoke free kitchens.

Elsa G., who received one of the very first stoves in the community, shared with us that she is very satisfied with her stove. She notes that her improved cookstove saves her a significant amount of firewood and greatly reduces the smoke in her kitchen. Elsa, who opened her house to the community during the stove fair, continues to support the other women in her community as they adjust to cooking with their new stoves and to spread interest for the technology to new families.

Three local technicians have integrated into the project and are learning how to construct, maintain and repair improved cookstoves. Once the project is complete, they will be available to provide ongoing technical support for families.

In the upcoming quarter we will install the remaining 21 improved cookstoves for rural families in Central Nicaragua.

All the best,

Caitlyn
