Installing eco-friendly stoves

Installing a fuel-efficient stove for a Mayan family markedly improves their lives. These stoves are fantastic in that:

  • The flames are enclosed so burns are reduced
  • There is a chimney to expel the smoke so respiratory problems are eliminated
  • They are much more fuel-efficient so they are more environmentally friendly.

You get to complete the stoves so you see the finished, tangible result, ready to use!
