The goal: $2160.86

The PCV: “Three cheers for the environment! And empowerment! And rosquillas!

This project offers the opportunity to target the environmental impact of traditional fire stoves, engage in a reforestation campaign, reduce the health effects of smoke inhalation, and provide small business opportunities for women in 5 small rural communities.”
