One of the leading causes of illness, injury and death among the villagers of the Barillas area relates to the breathing of smoke inside the village huts from the open fires used for cooking and heat.

Our mission is simple. Train local men and women to manufacture the most efficient wood cookstove in Guatemala. Our stove uses less wood and creates greater heat for cooking and warmth than any other stove tested in Guatemala. Manufactured at the Aller Skill Center in Barillas, we can deliver to a large geographical area in Northwest Guatemala. 

The word is out, it's time to begin expansion of our stoves to regions farther south. Today we are looking to open a second Skill Center to train and employee more men and women to produce the Aller Stove. 

Funding generated here is an investment in new, modern equipment for the facility. Brake presses, welders, plasma cutters and raw materials will enable our organization to triple output and reach a larger base of need in Guatemala.

A STOVE IN EVERY HOME

Jeffrey Hager, on behalf of

Hands for Peacemaking Foundation

The need is always great. The need to conserve the second largest forest in the Americas. The need to reduce greenhouse emissions from open fire cooking. The need to decrease illness in homes that have an open burn. The need to train a workforce that is ready to meet the demand for clean air cookstoves.
