The cost of one mamit (bucket of charcoal) in Haiti is 35 Gourdes (85 cents).  One meal requires one mamit.  The average daily salary in Haiti is $2 per day.   It is easy to see why Haiti needs our help.  TWP is bringing fuel-efficient stoves to Haiti, helping to reduce fuel costs and deforestation.  Click here to help.
