    With your HELP we can...."STOP THE KILLER IN THE KITCHEN!"Toxic indoor smoke causes debilitating respiratory diseases, and is the number four killer of women and children in South Africa.
    Help Eliminate the Deadly Effects of Cooking Stove Smoke!Fuel Efficiency Stoves Combat Indoor Air Pollution, Violence against Women and Children, Reduce risk of house fires and burns, Improve health, Environmental damage mitigation, Promote Economic Development.
    Exposure to indoor air pollution has been associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, tuberculosis and diseases of the eye in adults; low birth weight and, of particular concern, acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) such as pneumonia. ALRIs are the single leading cause of death amongst children less than 5 years old worldwide. Every year, indoor air pollution is responsible for the death of 1.6 million people - that's one death every 20 seconds (WHO). In developing countries, 90% of the population lack access to sufficient and sustainable supplies of energy, with at least 1.6 billion people without electricity. We need your help! Help us continue our service with Alexandra Township in Johannesburg, SA, giving community leaders and residents training and empowering them together to build over several hundred fuel efficiency stoves using Dr. Winiarski’s low-cost mud, brick and bucket mold award winning methods.
    Most importantly, this effort is in line with the United Nations Climate Change Conference which aims to strengthen the fight against global warming by cutting carbon emission by 2015.
    CALL TO ACTION FUNDRAISING PROJECT: $12 dollars Buys a Family a Stove.
    GOAL: $12,500 to train and build 1000 fuel efficiency stoves by April 11, 2012

    look like they need more than stoves.. looks like they need to abandon the oppressive economic model that created this kind of existence. That economic system, afterall, was created and run by their oppressors so, how could it not also be oppressive? It's not enough to take up the positions of the colonizers after they leave and keep the same oppressive systems of thought and action in place.. then you become them and your brothers become those others.
