Did you know that 1 out of every 3 people on our earth cook over an open fire each day?
Because of that fire, the inhalation of smoke, risk of burns, and time and money spent collecting firewood causes numerous health and economic problems for families, especially mothers and children.
At StoveTeam, we believe that no family should have to sacrifice its health, safety or education to cook a meal.
Who we are:
To make our vision a reality, we work to promote the local production of safe, affordable, fuel-efficient cookstoves to replace dangerous open fires in the developing world.
To do so, we partner with locally owned and operated, stove-producing factories. Our partner factories are located in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras. Our partners benefit local communities through local materials manufacturing, employment, support of local services and ultimately through the distribution of a local solution that promotes health, safety and environmental conservation.
Although a cookstove may seem like a simple piece of technology, its impacts are vast! It ensures clean air, fewer burns, and less money and time spent collecting firewood. Beyond that, healthier lives and income saved means more energy can be spent on other activities such as work or school, ultimately working to elevate families out of poverty.
