Women of Jocotan, coming to the pilot home event
Dear Global Giving Friends,
We really want to thank you for your support in partnering with Guatemalan rural families, so they can access filters and stoves.
Since the last report, we have installed the two Wakami home pilots, in Clara Ines´s and Victor Hugo´s houses. Both are leaders in their communities, are studying in college and are producing for the Wakami Value Chain. The entire communities were invited, and about 50 people where there during the setting of the pilot homes. The community saw the products, how to install them, how to use them, and really important, the benefits.
With the first transfer of your donations, for $1,000, we were able to partner with:
8 families in buying the filters
10 families in buying the stoves.
There is a second transfer coming to us, which will help us cover the demand of these products. Families are very excited, since both the smoke in the homes and very contaminated water sources, are things that these products solve.
Once again, thank you so much for your donations!!! They are really making a difference!!
