Nicaragua | Improved Oven and Stove Project

Ginsburg, J.
volunteer from Pennsylvania
in Nicaragua

With a community counterpart, the volunteer will be assisting in the construction of 8 improved stoves and 11 ovens in Tecolostote. Through this project we will help decrease respiratory illness from smoke inhalation, improve economic conditions for recipients and improve environmental knowledge about local problems such as deforestation. Recipients will help with the actual construction as well as provide local materials for construction including the table/base for each oven/stove. Through this project we hope to help some families improve their local baking focused businesses and to make lives safer and more affordable for stove recipients, all the while bringing national environmental problems to light and helping aid reforestation locally. Community members have complained about firewood scarcity in areas and a need for the improved technology
