Clean Fuels & Cook Stoves for Haiti

UNA-SNY Energy Project in New York, NY by Matthias Resch

Health & Safety
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.

What population we serve?

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

What success we've already had

All partners have a track record of successfully working on the gound and remotely to advance Haitian socio-economic development and community-building. To read more, please visit http://www.unasouthernny.org/energy-project.html

Our primary mission
The collaborative effort will be undertaken by the Public Private Alliance Foundation (PPAF), SocialTap Inc's The Haiti Initiative, Community Development International (CDi), and Konbit Pou Ayiti (Konpay) with the endorsement of UNA-SNY.
Why should you support our cause

Energy Poverty and Deforestation are key to the country’s socio-economic and ecological challenges, affecting various inter-related issue-areas.

How the money will be spent

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.
