I started working with this non-profit as a volunteer in 2005. My experience with this outfit is that it was very professionally maintained and managed and the talent behind PPAF was exceptional. There was also a very compassionate staff whose life's work was helping the people of Haiti in an effort to advance them and greatly improve their lives. The efforts the PPAF has put to aid and empower the people of Haiti has been insightful and practical and they have some very good ideas on sustainable solutions and useful insight.

I had the privilege of interning for the Public-Private Alliance Foundation back in the spring of 2014. The experience was so rewarding and positive, that I returned two years later to intern once more! I have seen first-handedly the immense hard work and dedication of both David and Ginger Stillman, two incredibly kind people who are passionate about the work they do (and so creative!) David and Ginger always made me feel welcome in their home and I found myself always doing work that felt both meaningful and inspiring. Interning for the Public-Private Alliance Foundation taught me so much, showing me that together, we can truly make a difference in the lives of people, no matter how daunting the task may seem initially. I hope to continue seeing the organization grow and help as much as I can!

I have been working with PPAF since 2007. It is accredited to the United Nations, which means PPAF is able to punch far above its weight. It is doing fantastic work in Haiti supporting the manufacture and use of clean cook stoves to create skills and jobs and to promote health in the home. PPAF also is working to create an ethanol market using the waste from sugar production. It is fantastic?

PPAF continues its efforts to improve the health of people in Haiti and other countries that use wood burning stoves but developing local sources of Ethanol for the ethanol cook stoves that they helped developed. By eliminating the smoke and soot from wood burning cook stoves, the health of the families using ethanol cook stoves is greatly improved, particularly that of the women and children who spend the most time in proximity to the cook stoves. Also the wood burning cook stoves are a major cause of the deforestation of the country side, resulting in erosion and depletion of the soil.

PPAF is working with excellent partners to promote sustainable fuel and improved cook stoves
for Haiti. PPAF identified many ways to make ethanol production more efficient and is working to demonstrate that high quality affordable ethanol for cooking can be produced in Haiti using local feed
stock. Wood and wood charcoal are currently used by 1.85 million households (out of 2 million) in Haiti using about 4 million tons of trees. Sustainable yield from current Haitian forest is estimated at .5 million tons. Volunteer time is used to stretch effective use of donations to the maximum extent possible.
