StoveTeam International Installed 2,400 Stoves in 2023

In 2021, the HPBA and HPBAC adopted StoveTeam International as a Charity of Choice. Since that time, with your support, StoveTeam International placed over 1,500 fuel-efficient cookstoves in homes in Central America. Their 1,000 Stove Challenge would not have been possible without the backing and generosity of companies like yours, Thank YOU!

Every cookstove we place is constructed and installed by trained and certified Master Stovebuilders. With these cookstoves, we are reducing the amount of fuel used by over 50%, reducing indoor smoke by nearly 100%, reducing carbon emissions by an estimated 80%, providing secure employment for local people, and reducing families' reliance on open-fire cooking. One cookstove is a powerful and inexpensive solution that is making a difference in the lives of families.

In 2023, hearth industry retailers, distributors, and manufacturers have generously supported StoveTeam International's mission to reduce open-fire cooking in rural Central America. StoveTeam successfully raised $70,000 towards our $100,000 goal. StoveTeam International would like to thank their sponsors, Associated Energy Systems, The Foundry, ICC, Northwest Stove Ltd, Pacific Energy Fireplace, Ltd, RH Peterson Company, My Hoosier Hearth, Nordic Energy, Empire Comfort, Forrest Technical Coatings, Duravent Group, Heritage Fire Company, Jason Top Hat & Tales, Buck Stove Energy Center, Hearthstone House of Fire, SBC Global, Tom Siebold, Woodstove Junction, Pacific Energy, The Fire Folks LLC.

StoveTeam International is honored to once again be one of HPBA & HPBAC's Charity of Choice, and attend HPBExpo. During the Expo, StoveTeam International will unveil its 2024 Challenge, which is dedicated to amplifying its mission and garnering increased backing from the heart industry. This initiative aims to place efficient stoves in the homes of individuals who currently depend on open fires for their daily cooking needs, reinforcing their commitment to positively impacting communities worldwide. Check out StoveTeam International at Booth 952 and Expo's Outdoor Burn Event on Tuesday, February 13 where they will showcase their Justa Cookstove and whip up some tasty treats!
