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.
Bring together young and innovative minds to implement engineered solutions in order to provide families in rural Guatemala with efficient and safer alternatives to cooking on open fire pits.
Enable the development of sustainable communities in rural Guatemala while tackling health, socio-economic and environmental issues.
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!
