Transformation Collaborative

The Himalayan Stove Project (HSP)

Announces a New Funding Initiative

 It’s a tiered program to help us continue to transform the lives of individuals, families and entire villages in the Mt. Everest region and in other remote villages in Nepal.

HSP’s funding goal of $150,000 by year end will provide for Container #6 of Envirofit clean cook stoves to be delivered in 2019.

Why Your Annual or Monthly Participation Matters

  • Your donation will change the lives of Nepalese families living in remote villages with your annual or monthly donation.
  • Your generosity allows us to continue our mission to donate and distribute clean burning, fuel efficient Envirofit cook stoves to individuals, families and entire villages in the Mt. Everest region and in other remote villages in Nepal.
  • You will help reduce the burden of fuel consumption on forests and reduce CO2.
  • You join a team of dedicated, passionate, caring individuals committed to this humanitarian program founded by George Basch, “Chief Cook”, in 2010. George remains committed to this program and is a member of the Board of Directors.

HSP Donates The Stoves But

The Recipients Have “Skin In The Game”

 

Recipient individuals and families from these remote villages make an investment in their receipt of our stoves, meeting HSP’s “skin in the game” criteria. Their contribution may be transporting the stoves from the drop point to the village, or may be money that stays in their village and helps with projects of their choice, be it schools, infrastructure or micro-loans. One village invested in a rice mill, and now also “rents time” to other villages, creating a self sustaining income stream.

“We all want to change the world … most of us are kind enough, but not quite creative enough to figure out how to make a difference for people living in challenging circumstances. The Himalayan Stove Project is a tangible, smart, common sense approach. Well worth getting behind.” Dave Hahn
