Dear Global Giving Friends,

Since our last report, one thing has changed!!  And that is the number of rural women in the Village of Pastores who want to be able to buy a filter and a stove for their homes, in partnership with people from the world.


They are seeing how the women who already bought theirs, have access to clean water and have smokeless environments, and also want that for themselves.


The situation with water is so critical, that women sometimes say the can “eat the water”.  This is because their village is by a river, and when the waters “go up”, clean water gets mixed up with sewage water.


That is why we say that filters and stoves go a long way in these communities.  They guarantee two basic things for families:  clean water and clean homes – key for children’s health.


We only have about $500 to complete this project!!!  During this holiday season, these filter’s and stoves make a beautiful gift, allowing you to go into a rural home in Guatemala.


Once again, thank you for the support you have give us.  24 families have filters and 15 families have stoves!!!
