Stove Crew

Designed for children, families, seniors, and young & old alike, our Stove Crews will work side-by-side with village family members in their homes, to fulfill one of the greatest needs of our Mission Sites.  

Our Stove Crews will be installing Eco-Plancha high-efficiency stoves in children’s homes.  These stoves burn 70% less wood, and reduce smoke by 99%.  This will improve the daily lives of dozens of women and children for many years, especially the women who spend much of their day collecting wood, and who suffer from eye and respiratory problems from smoke from open fires in the kitchen. 

Much more detailed information about how these amazing stoves work, how we install them, and how families are selected to receive them is located on the Eco-Plancha high-efficiency stove page.

Crews will consist of approximately 5 members each, totaling 5-7 crews per week.  Building experience is not necessary.
