Maya women cook food with fires built on a wooden pallet called a polleton. Because the open cooking fires are inside the home, families breathe in toxic fumes, which cause eye irritations and respiratory problems. We help solve this problem by installing Eko-Stoves.
In addition to the health benefits of the foundation’s Eko-Stoves, the wood-burning stoves use 70 percent less firewood, which saves families money and time and the environment. The other problem is clean water and we have partnered with EcoFiltro to provided these water filters giving the gift of clean water.
In addition to the stove and water filter, which are both made in Guatemala, the foundation helps every family organize their home and plant their own garden. The foundation also supplies women with multi-nutritional prenatal vitamins donated by the Kirk Humanitarian Foundation.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
