About

Smoke-Free Homes is a new venture which aims to tackle socioeconomic, environmental and health issues in rural Guatemala. Our main project consists of providing Eco-Stoves for women and families in rural Guatemala. These stoves will improve their quality of life by reducing expenses, providing a safer environment, and removing toxic chemicals from their homes. This project also plans to incorporate engineering design to improve the current model of the Eco-Stove in order to make it more efficient and better equipped to address the needs of the Guatemalan communities.

Projects

Fundraising Team

 

The purpose of this team is to create awareness of the issues faced by Guatemalans. We also enable the process of gathering funds for the project through sponsorships, donations, and event fundraising. We are collaborating with Rotary Club East Guatemala to subsidize Eco-Stoves and reach as many families as possible! 

 

Eco-Stove Design Team

 

The purpose of this team is to improve the current Eco-Stove model using the engineering design process. We want to improve the quality of life of Guatemalan families by creating a stove that fits their needs and cultural background.
