You can support Timbermart’s efforts to make a difference in the developing world. A corporate team will travel to Guatemala in November 2018 to install eco stoves into the homes of families living in poverty. Forest land in Guatemala is disappearing. The search for firewood and the need for large amounts for cooking and heat is resulting in major losses. Cooking indoors over open fires fills their homes with smoke and results in severe health problems.
In Guatemala more than half of families rely on open fires to cook. This causes the smoke to fill their homes and results in severe health problems. DWC's Light Up Guatemala program will put 5,000 eco-stoves in the homes of families living in poverty throughout Guatemala. The stove filters and channels smoke outside the home. As a result, women and children are no longer exposed to polluted air for long periods of time.

Jessica and Darby will be traveling to Nepal with DWC in November, 2018. They'll be working with like-minded volunteers who want to give a struggling family a hand up not a hand out. The plan is to build a small home for Nauni, a 34 year old single mother with a daughter and son. It will be a basic block house with tin roof, not much by most standards, but it offers a safe and stable environment to raise her children and will make a big difference. Your contribution will buy materials in-country and assist Jessica and Darby to make this a reality. Supporters who contribute $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt.
