Mission Statement

StoveTeam International promotes the local production of safe, affordable, fuel-efficient cookstoves in the developing world.

Description

Smoke from indoor cooking fires kills eight times as many as AIDS and Malaria combined and is the leading cause of death of children under age 5.

StoveTeam wants to reduce cooking over open fires, so helps local entrepreneurs to establish stove factories in Latin America. These self-sustaining businesses produce safe, affordable, fuel-efficient cookstoves to replace dangerous open cooking fires. Ecocina factories have produced more than 44,600 stoves, improving the lives of more than 334,000 people.

StoveTeam's model has been awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Award for Developing Local Markets for our innovatibe approach creating local employment while improving health and reducing air pollution.

StoveTeam volunteers and donors have assisted in this important work.
