Low-income areas in Buenos Aires lack access to gas infrastructure & poor families must rely on unreliable & costly propane tanks. FPVS provides capital & technical expertise to connect homes and community buildings to the main gas network. Since 2002, FPVS has helped 14,500 people bring gas to their homes. Gas connections improve quality of life, reduce energy costs & increase property values. FPVS seeks funds to connect community buildings that provide essential services to local residents.
In January 2010, FPVS will begin working to extend the gas network to 7,000 more families. Your money will ensure that community centers are included in the benefits of internal gas connections.
Providing schools & community centers with gas reduces health risks associated with poorly cooked food & lack of heating during winter months. Heating in schools will enhance the learning environment. Gas is a cleaner & more reliable source of energy
