Together with the Public Private Alliance Foundation, Konpay, and SocialTap, and with the endorsement of our work by the United Nations Association of Southern New York and its Energy Project, we are looking to implement an innovative and localized project that addresses several issues at once. During the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All, we propose to address energy poverty, deforestation, human & environmental health, gender issues, economic empowerment and more -- all by introducing clean fuels & cook stoves in a community-based pilot evaluation program.

Thank you ! Stay tuned for updates and upcoming events on the topic.

WHAT POPULATION WE SERVE:
Beneficiaries are largely women and children – those charged with cooking and with collection of firewood. And, of course, the environment.


ABOUT OUR CAUSE:
A community-based evaluation of clean cook stoves in Cyvadier, Jacmel area, and Seguin. Stove models will be provided to target communities, to use and assess economic, social, and cultural appropriateness. Feedback will inform potential adjustments. We will initially prioritize vendors of street food and community kitchens at schools or hospitals, whose public use of these stoves will increase visibility and acceptance. These evaluations will form the basis for roll-out and expansion.


WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT OUR CAUSE:
Poverty and Deforestation are key to the country’s socio-economic and ecological challenges, affecting various inter-related issue-areas.


HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED:
Funding will inform scale, locations and timing of the project. It will build local capacity, subsidize stoves for roll-out, cover monitoring and evaluation costs, pay for training workshops, and define feasibility of expansion plans. Several school kitchens will receive industrial sized stoves.
