Our focus of our 2019 Community Development Projects is to bring cleaner, more efficiently burning stoves to our community. Currently in Nicaragua the primary method of cooking is still over an open fire. These spaces are fairly enclosed to prevent wind from blowing and therefore very smokey.  These stoves are very inefficient requiring a that a great deal of wood be harvested from our protected UNESCO bio-reserve. It is our intention a two pronged approach to create a healthier life for the forest and those who dwell within it.

Over the 3 days we will be working closely with our Nicaraguan neighbors while we bring these improvements into their homes. This is a fantastic chance to see first hand rural Nicaraguan living. The stoves will be constructed out of cob and the designs based off rocket stoves. You will learn the fundamentals of cob construction and finishing techniques leaving you well prepared to return home and construct a cob stove of your own. Be prepared to get dirty.
