Traditional stoves common throughout Honduras are non-vented, inefficient, and unsafe.
Madison Rotarians first traveled to Honduras in 2007 to assist Rotarians from Lawrenceburg, Tennessee with an electrical project.
Our EcoStove Project dates back to 2006 when we met Rotarians from Lawrenceburg, TN and learned about their electrical project in Choluteca.
Every project needs a coordinator and our Honduras Project needs Carolina.
Ceilings and walls are covered with thick layers of creosote. Lingering smoke makes it hard to see and even harder to breathe, causing long-term respiratory problems.
These ladies are just a few of our many EcoStove recipients.
They may start with manure and straw and end with a coffee can, but the EcoStove is improving the lives of families one stove at a time.
After many years of us traveling to her home in Southern Honduras, we were graced by Carolina’s visit to our home in late May 2015.
In the beginning of our EcoStove Project, folks on those early missions talked about the design, construction, and operation of the stoves. So, I gave a talk one day about us “building stoves in Honduras.”
