Haiti Stove Team
Trees, Water & People (TWP) continues to develop key partnerships and progress in activities and communication with local and international organizations working to rebuild Haiti after January’s devastating earthquake. Recently, TWP earned designation as one of about 10 organizations in the Improved Stoves Working Group in Port au Prince, coordinated by the Haitian Ministry of Energy and Mines. At the same time, we are building a deeper relationship with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) as they develop TWP’s idea of creating a National Stove Resource Center in Port au Prince.
As we work to expand TWP’s network in the country, distribution of the 1,344 StoveTec stoves that we previously sent to Haiti advances. We are also supporting International Lifeline Fund (ILF) during their final distribution of 7,000 fuel-efficient StoveTec Rocket stoves in the Corrales Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp.
As you can see, a lot is happening in Haiti. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this important project! Please continue to help us spread the word so that we can reach our goal of $33,600 to provide another shipment of 1,344 stoves to Haitian families still struggling to rebuild their lives after the earthquake.
