The Farm Stove Pilot Project/ Proyecto Estufa Finca (Costa Rica) Part 3
On January 7th 2011, the Proyecto Estufa Finca team began work on the follow-up and field testing phase of this pilot project. A minimum of two weeks after the households have received their new stove, I return with the members of the UNA-IRET program. Our visits are often paired with lessons on personal hygiene, sanitation, safe food and water storage and recycling. The care and thoughtfulness brought to this task by these National University students and their faculty leader: M. Rocia Loria, is inspiring.
The follow-up surveys overlaps two other important aspects of the project: the 18 meal Controlled Cooking Test and the volunteer participation of 22 students and advisers from De Pauw University. This group is brought to the area to work with us for 5 days, by Eco-Teach. The group is hosted by Arturo Segura, The Nubotropico Foundation and members of APORTES.
