Safe, Energy Efficient Cookstoves in Guatemala

May 22, 2014

More safe stoves and healthier homes!

This year HRI is bringing even more safe, energy efficient stoves to vulnerable households in Guatemala. We have expanded the reach of the initiative to include another community where we have already completed 45 stoves; and in an existing community, we are breaking ground on 12 additional stoves. It continues to be a lot of hard work and long hours for our local masons leading the construction effort, along with important physical and small financial contributions from each family receiving a stove, but the positive health and economic outcomes show that it is all worth it!

It really does take a village - from our staff’s commitment and passion for the project, to your generosity making it possible, to the communities and families contributing their strength, sweat and constant appreciation - the success of this project is a true team effort!

With so many more families to reach, we hope you will continue to support the project in whatever way you can and help spread the word to others. Thank you so much.
