Developments in Kichwa Sustainable House Project

We've successfully raised the necessary funds and started buying construction materials for the house (bricks), stove (bricks, gravel, chimney, etc.) and floor (cement). Additionally, we built a "test stove" to introduce the idea of clean burning wood stoves to the community. The pilot stove was completed on Dec. 28th, and will be replicated, at a smaller scale, in the Sustainable House.
