56 million

trees saved!

Thank you for supporting the Happy Health, Happy Heart projects. You have made a HUGE difference, and your donation is helping to save our climate, to save our planet, and to improve the lives of over 3.5 million people across the globe. There is an old saying that “you can’t see the forest for the trees,” but, with these projects, we are seeing a truly welcome recovery of forests in places as geographically diverse as Honduras, Uganda, and Malawi. By reducing carbon emissions by over eight million tonnes, you have helped to save, by conservative estimate, 56 million trees! Together those trees would comprise a forest the size of Delaware. The earth has become a lot greener, and a lot healthier, with your help. Highlights from the Happy Health, Happy Heart projects include:
  • In Uganda, 510,000 improved cookstoves have been installed, reducing carbon emissions by four million tonnes
  • In Malawi, institutional cookstoves feed over 325,000 school kids, saving forests, reducing emissions, and helping schools to give students, and Malawi, a better future
  • In Honduras, a major milestone was reached with over 150,000 cookstoves installed, 22,000 alone in 2017, creating jobs, cutting carbon, and improving the lives of over 650,000 people
