Over half of Guatemalans cook their food and heat water over open or barely contained fires, filling their small, one room homes with eye burning smoke, leading to chronic respiratory disease, blindness and severe burns in both children and adults. Small children, who are typically carried on their mother’s backs, are chronically exposed to smoke and toxic fumes.
Our mission is to build stoves from locally purchased materials that will improve the health and quality of living of the Guatemalan people. The stoves are built by local laborers and are designed to burn efficiently, greatly reducing the amount of wood needed. They have chimneys that remove smoke and soot.
The need can be overwhelming, but we stay focused and make the improvements one stove at a time. We have now completed over 500 stoves.
