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 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.

PPAF has engaged over 50 interns since 2006, providing opportunities for them to learn about global affairs, development issues, and to gain hands-on experience related to their interests. Interns have carried out research, translated materials, assisted with conferences, and, in a few cases, gained experience abroad. You can see testimonials (videos) of several interns at: www.ppafoundation.org Here are some photos of our interns and a giving campaign that supports our work with them.

I am happy that PPAF's ethanol stove and fuel project is now working with D&E Green, a manufacturer in Haiti, to bring these new stoves to market. Women staff members are involved in creating the questionnaires and interviewing test participants, and most test participants and stove distributors are women. PPAF is doing an excellent job in creating a viable substitute for charcoal and wood use in stoves.

Over the last several years, I have witnessed the increasing maturity of PPAF as an organization, and its growing ability to mobilize grant funding to underpin the important work they plan. The orderly progress of the Haiti alcohol stoves project seems destined to create change for the people of Haiti, who have long been negatively impacted by the environmental, economic, and health effects of relying primarily on charcoal for cooking fuel.

The Public-Private Alliance Foundation creates organizational and intellectual space for synergy between for-profit and non-profit entities, leading to improved development in low-income countries. While this has been in vogue for more than a decade in development circles, the direct experience of PPAF, especially in the Haiti alcohol stoves efforts, amply demonstrates the benefits of this approach.

It is a real pleasure to work with PPAF. It is doing fantastic work in Haiti and is engaged in cutting-edge work on clean cook stoves and ethanol. The US government is supporting these aims as well, which makes the work all the more important. In Madagascar PPAF also works to supply medical equipment and has the support of the Highest levels of the Malagasy government.

I have had the honor to have had the opportunity to work as a consultant with PPAF and their incredible work in Haiti to provide alternatives to charcoal as a cook fuel. They are tireless and consistent at pushing forward with innovative and productive ways to identify uses of several potential biofuel sources that would improve the health and environment of the Haitian people. My work , to provide Ethanol as clean burning alternative fuel has been extremely rewarding. I have been honored and thankful for the opportunity to work with this outstanding,dedicated and focused organization.
