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!

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 doing exciting work with sustainable cookstoves in Haiti. It also continues to support important initiatives in the Dominican Republic and Madagascar. PPAF is a credible non-profit with strong ties to the United Nations. I'm so pleased that it is now a member NGO recognized by the UN Department of Public Information. I am a strong supporter of PPAF because I believe in its missions, people, and future. PPAF is very accessible to youth. I highly recommend its internship program - flexible, unique, and rewarding.

I have known of PPAF and its work since 2003. In 2003-2004, I interned with PPAF to support the organization in its early growth, and witnessed some of the tremendous work that it has done in Madagascar. More recently I have been a donor and occasional volunteer for PPAF. PPAF has identified an integral, under-resourced link in what one could describe as the value chain for poverty reduction. By serving as a passionate advocate for high-impact, win-win opportunities, PPAF is able to overcome the inertia that often prevents such opportunities from being realized. In addition, by virtue of the impressive rolodex that the organization has assembled, it is able to rapidly identify promising opportunities and get all necessary stakeholders to the table in a way that few others can.

The Public Private Alliance Foundation (PPAF) has striven to help people in different parts of the world for many years. The PPAF has provided access to personal computers in Madagascar. More recently they have worked to provide clean ethanol cook stoves to women in Haiti to replace the wood burning stoves that both cause health problems in the homes and led to the deforestation of the country. By sourcing the manufacture of these cook stoves, and the ethanol they use, in Haiti, the PPAF is also trying to provide jobs to help the country recover from the devastating earthquake.
