Day 10 – Latin America

We’ll talk more about what was wrong with the old ways later. Today I’m going to touch on our project region, Latin America. As far as the global population goes, there are far more people who cook with solid fuel in places like Africa and Asia. Relief agencies and government bodies have spent the bulk of their resources addressing this very real need, and rightly so. Projects have been done in Latin America, but for a variety of reasons this region tends to get sidelined. Well, not anymore.

Latin America lies at our doorstep. Like you, I know many people from various places in Latin America. Heck, my wife is from Latin America. We even live in Latin America. Like the bumper sticker says; New Mexico: It’s not new, and it’s not Mexico…

Anyway, we all have cultural ties to our neighbors south of the border, and our placement on the globe means that WE are the closest ones who can help! So, grab a carpet square, sit down, and enjoy another video from our partner, the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. This one takes place in Peru, and you can figure out the rest.

To be continued…
