Reforestation in the communities

By Dom Williams | GVI Latin America Project Director

Energy efficient stove
Energy efficient stove

The energy efficient stoves provided for families in Latin America carry huge benefits both for the families who receive them and for the environment. Each energy efficient stove uses 75% less firewood than open fires, a huge difference. The new stoves do however continue to use firewood as this is a readily available resource to poor communities. To help compensate for the trees which are used for fuel we have been doing reforestation work and have recently prepared 20,000 seedlings which will be tended by community members until they are ready to be planted in June 2011. 

Activities like this are great in so many ways for the community as they not only help to bring improvements but provide an opportunity for everyone to work together strengthening bonds and can bring a focus to the benefit of our educational programs as activities are often cantered around the school.

We look forward to planting the trees and building more energy efficient stoves in 2011!
