|Photo 1. The first home I visited. On the left you can see |
how two children were eating their breakfast here. Would you want to
grow up with this as your kitchen?
|Photo 2. This is another example of a "stove". This style is not|
directly on the ground but still the same health concerns still exist.
|Photo 3. This is inside someone's home. The kettles are placed |
on top of the fire to boil water to drink and for their general cooking.
This shows what "open fire within the home" really means.
|Photo 4. This door opens to the inside of the home and is left open |
while cooking to allow for more ventilation. However, you can clearly
see the damage these open fires do not only to the HEALTH of these
individuals but also to their homes.
|Photo 5. A family of 8 depend on this "stove" for 3 meals a day.|
|Photo 6. Maria, one of the presidents of the group and her three beautiful|
daughters in their kitchen. Two young sons and a husband
rely on this "stove" as well.
|Photo 9. The presidents, COCODE, and my counterpart working|
together on the creation of this infrastructure project
|This is the stove we built during In-Service-Training that |
we hope to replicate in the
community of San Pedro II
