Stoves for all in Muenala, Ecuador!

We are very proud to announce that we have completed our stoving project here in
Muenala, Ecuador. Over the past 18 months we have built exactly 21 stoves within the local community.

This means that each of the families within the community now have full use of their very own GVI Phoenix designed stove. This mean that the our kids and their families no longer need to contend with breathing in the smoke and having it saturate their clothes.

It also means, from an environmental perspective that the wood used now lasts longer
and the stove not only serves to cook meals on but also as a central heater in the house - especially necessary in the wet winter months here.

Many thanks from Muenala and the GVI Phoenix team to everyone that has donated money and
time to built the stoves here in Ecuador. Keep your eye on the blog for news on more
construction project opportunities!
