S.H.A.R.E. is providing ECO Stoves

Installation of 30 stoves in the following communities:1) New Birth Chalice (11 stoves), 2) El Rosario (10 stoves) and 3) Sarstoon Creek (09 stoves), benefiting a total of 180 people. As part of the provisioning of stoves, a project to plant future wood growth on 15 hectares of fallow area is also part of the Eco stove project. To provide a cleaner burning and safer cooking appliance and to create sustainable wood growth for fuel. This is much better for the environment and the family will not have to cook outside and deal with inclement weather. https://www.engineeringforchange.org/solutions/product/chispa-hogar/

Project Leader: Carl Fletcher

As a 40+ year donor I’ve supported S.H.A.R.E.'s practical and effective projects that help people help themselves. Upon retirement from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs, I volunteered as a Projects Committee member. I am now Project Manager for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras projects. I am a Professional Agrologist and a Canadian Association of Farm Advisors member. I value that each S.H.A.R.E. project requires the beneficiaries to Pass on a benefit to others in recognition of the help the project has given them.
