Tilori Solar Oven
A typical family like Idaname Supreme's of Tilori, Haiti, can use 25 pounds of wood as cooking fuel every day in order to survive, which places a heavy toll on the local forests. With your support, The Nature Conservancy is working to protect forests and other natural habitats around the world.
The family forestry and alternative cooking projects are proving to be successful in linking forest conservation with an improved quality of life in rural Haiti. Families are learning to cook Haitian meals like soup, beans, potatoes, yucca, plantains and rice with energy-efficient stoves and solar ovens — little or no wood or charcoal is needed.
Your gift could buy a solar oven for a family in Haiti.
