Masonry Cookstoves​

Three billion people continue to cook over an open fire or rudimentary stove and the resultant air pollution is a leading cause of death and disability. A GSP masonry cookstove will provide a wide range of health, economic and social benefits for a Maya family. Visit guatestoveproject on YouTube for a closer look.

Educational Bursaries

Attending high school may be the dream of a young Maya girl and her family but is seldom the reality. A GSP educational bursary offers this opportunity and will give her more choices about her future.

 

Microloans

When traditional financing is not available, a GSP micro-loan is a valuable method to finance small projects and earn much needed income.

 

 

Emergency Assistance

Emergency assistance allows for immediate financing to our Guatemalan partners in times of crisis such as earthquakes, mudslides, and serious health concerns. These events greatly impact Maya families with few economic resources

Donate Now to help more Maya Families!

GSP funds the construction of cookstoves for Maya families in Guatemala. By donating a stove, you can work towards balancing your carbon footprint as well as saving forests and providing a healthier home for families who would otherwise be using an open fire. The cookstove saves 2 to 3 tons of carbon emissions annually so that over the average 10 year stove lifespan, 20 to 30 tons of carbon emissions are avoided. If you donate one stove a year
Read more at a cost of $300 and consume less, you can begin to approach being carbon neutral. 

Get Involved and Become a Volunteer!

Volunteers at Work in Canada – From beer can and bottle collecting at folk festivals to woven bracelet sales in schools, our Canadian volunteers have shown creativity and perseverance in their efforts to fundraise for stoves and other projects. Yearly dances, cocktail parties, sit-down dinners, garage sales and presentations to schools and churches have provided us with opportunities to connect with Canadian donors and offer a hand-up to deserving Guatemalan families.
