Commitment to Action

Partnership for Fuel Efficient Stoves for Haiti

Commitment by

Prakti Design Lab

In 2009, Prakti Design Lab committed to creating an innovative and inclusive partnership to develop and distribute fuel-efficient and low polluting stoves in Haiti that would eliminate the use of charcoal as cooking fuel. These stoves would be scalable, and therefore impact a wide range of issues, including deforestation, health, poverty, global warming, and gender issues.
By April 2011, Prakti had distributed 2,000 household stoves and 500 institutional stoves, impacting 85,000 people. Their stoves were judged by third-party testing agencies for USAID to be the best household and institutional stoves in Haiti, reducing fuel usage by over 42%.
