Project report 5/26/17

EcoLogic's work in gutamala providing clean-burning stoves to families in rural area of Guatemala improves household health, reduces deforestation, and gives stove users—typically women—more time to spend on other pursuits. EcoLogic is grateful for the continuing support of our donors and partners as we continue our work in this area of critical biodiversity. 

With spruing comes the rainy season, when out locally-based field technicians are hard at work as the tree planting season kicks off. This year, EcoLogic is aiming to achieve the following goals in Guatemala:

  • Plant 100,000 trees in deforested areas
  • Reforest 90 acres of land
  • Run 6 reforestation workshop for local community members
  • Install 100 clean-burning, fuel efficeint stoves
  • Run 3 stove use workshops for 100 local community members
  • Conduct site visits to inspect use of stoves already installed
  • Conduct 5 youth-oriented environmental workshops
  • Engage 35 community members in monitoring to prevent illegal logging

EcoLogic's smart, sustainable solutions ensure that people in rural and indigenous communiteis have access to sustainable livelihoods, so they aren't forced to rely on monocropping, illegal logging, overfishing, or any other unsustainable practice. With your support, we can continue out work and bring these solutions to more communiteis in need.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

The EcoLogic Team
