Every time we begin a new project in a community, we are moving one step closer to making cooking a safe experience for everyone.
The following photos highlight our newest cookstove project in La Benedición, Guatemala, from the supply chain to the newly built cookstove. With careful planning, strong NGO partnerships, community involvement, and hard work, this project is taking off. In all, 30 stoves will be built in this community, decreasing sickness and death from indoor air pollution, deforestation, and time spent collecting firewood. Enjoy the photos!
Did you know?
Around the world, women and children are suffering from the effects of indoor air pollution (IAP). In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that each year nearly 2 million people, mostly women and children, die from the health consequences of IAP. Why are so many people dying from the innocent act of cooking? Cooking shouldn’t kill!
