Project Completion and Wrap-Up

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thanks to your generous support we have reached our goal of installing 50 improved cookstoves in Candelaria and Sonzapote! Over the last couple of weeks, I have been working with our local partner AsoFenix and the community stove promoters, Dora and Janeth to visit stove beneficiaries and conduct post-installation surveys. Through this survey, local women shared how the improved cookstoves have changed their lives, areas where they need more support and technicians reviewed proper maintenance for the stoves.

The women from the community spoke enthusiastically about their improved cookstoves recognizing the many benefits coming from the stoves. Yakeni G. shared, “In the beginning it was hard to get used to the new stoves, but now it is great especially the fact it is quicker to cook on and doesn’t produce smoke.” Another community member Isabel A. added, my stove is beautiful and that it saves me a lot of firewood.”

We are currently gathering the stove beneficiaries comments and observations into our final project report and will close the project by the end of August. We are grateful to all of our donors for their ongoing support, making this project possible. Thanks to you, women like Yakeni, Isabel and 48 others are saving firewood, reducing smoke in their kitchens, improving their and their family’s health and quality of life.

All the best,

 Caitlyn
