How an Eco Justa Stove Works
I am currently implementing an improved stove and pila project in the community of Quebraditas, Trinidad in the department of Copan, Honduras with funds I have received from a SPA grant. The community was invloved with writing the grant, pricing and buying construction materials, building the stoves and pilas, and attended training on envrionmental education and basic sanitation.
The stoves we are building are called Eco Justa Stoves and use less firewood and provide the houses with chimneys. The stoves are named after a Honduran woman named Dona Justa who helped make them popular.
