Where the money goes: Light up Guatemala
Light Up Guatemala improves the health of families that can’t afford a stove to cook on. Instead, they use open wood fires in their homes, which results in lung-damaging smoke filling the rooms and being breathed in by everyone, young and old. Light Up Guatemala puts fuel-efficient stoves into those homes, venting the smoke outside and burning less firewood. Most families spend anywhere from 11 to 23 percent of their household income to buy firewood. However, the stoves use less 70 percent less firewood, so as a result families save a lot of money. Additionally, families who spend hours gathering firewood don’t have to go out as often. And the overall reduction in firewood burning saves trees and cuts down on deforestation.
Where the money goes: Water For Life
Water For Life helps farmers in India transform desert into arable, productive farmland. This has included mapping rivers and smaller waterways that develop during the annual monsoon and then designing containment structures to conserve the rainwater. Because these structures range from rock and cement walls to large dams and crop irrigation channels they can help a variety of people. As a result, these efforts are readily visible one year after construction when new crops of wheat, barley, corn and other vegetables are growing where nothing has grown for years. Additionally, enhanced yields mean farmers are able to provide for their families and increase their income by selling excess produce.
