BENEFITING: FOUNDATION ESCALERA INC
I leave for Nichnamtic, Mexico on Christmas to build a school with Foundation Escalera, see here: http://www.crowdrise.com/LP-DEC
In addition to building a school, we are installing chimney stoves to help combat indoor smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning.
A donation from Live Nation and Ticketmaster has helped us to install 16 stoves, Homes were selected based on need and on number of small children in the home.
Help us install 16 more stoves for families in need by donating and spreading the word today!
Indoor air pollution from open woodfires affects children's ability to learn at school in Nichnamtic. Fund a stove and change a family's life.
A stove can change a family’s life now and create value for a better future. Chimney stoves lead to a child's improved learning at school, and saves a mother countless hours of work outside the home gathering or purchasing fuel.
What can a $150 stove do?
$280 of income saved
1,300 hours of time saved
33 trees saved
Smoke reduction of 60%
Help mothers in Nichnamtic by spreading the word today.
Foundation Escalera is a leader in providing educational infrastructure to indigenous villages in Mexico.
