Subject: [Stoves] Peru Stove Projects?
Hello Stove Experts and Afficionados,
I was recently asked by a Canadian agency in Peru to come there (200 km SE
of Lima - coastal, desert area) to introduce the people to stoves that : a)
Can remove smoke from houses and cut firewood use, b) Are made cheaply of
local materials (in this case mud, clay, sand, water).
I have spent 3 weeks researching many websites and spoken to a few experts
in Canada and the USA, and so somewhat familiar. I need hands-on building
experience appropriate to the Peru coast have found so far few solid
contacts in Peru.
Does anyone have contact info for appropriate stove projects, builders
and/or trainers now working in Peru (preferably not too far from Lima and
meeting a) and b) above???
ANY leads most appreciated!
Edmonton Alberta, Canada
PS. I'm also looking for some kind of survey/data collection tool to
identify the specific needs of people in rural, poor situations and still
using open fires.
