Under the concurrent pressures of rapid population growth and persisting poverty, more than 95% of Haiti’s natural forests have disappeared. Since the devastating earthquake of January 2010, the situation has only worsened. Countless families have flocked to urban centers; millions still live in refugee camps and tent cities. 95% of Haitians rely on biomass fuel for their daily cooking needs. Recognizing both the potential to significantly decrease deforestation by addressing the biomass needs of institutions and the importance of improving working conditions for kitchen workers in World Food Programme School Feeding Programs (WFP – SFP’s), over 100 75-litre Prakti institutional stoves were initially distributed in 2011 to schools in Port-au-Prince by International Lifeline Fund – Haiti, with nearly 500 more stoves ready to be deployed. The stoves, which use recycled briquettes as fuel, are currently feeding over 17,000 children per day and have saved over 20,000 kg of charcoal and 123,000 kg of wood. Simultaneously, cooks and kitchen workers have noted a dramatic improvement in their working conditions, schools save an average of USD 1,430 on their fuel expenses, and local forest resources experience far fewer population pressures.
