I have interacted with PPAF for the past several years and found that their dedication and skills are truly extraordinary. I have worked with them on their cook stove project in Haiti, and witness them taking an idea and transforming it into a sustainable project that supports economic development while protecting and enhancing women’s health. It has been inspiring! I look forward with anticipation to many more and continuing projects supported by this group.

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.

Their mission and vision to reduce poverty in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Madagascar truly makes a difference and should not go unnoticed.

The work that the Public Private Alliance Foundation has done thus far has already had a tremendous impact on the people of Haiti. The Alliance’s Ethanol Clean Cookstove Partnership is truly remarkable. It is an inexpensive and clean way for the people of Haiti to get their energy. Instead of getting their energy from charcoal and wood they can now get their energy from sugar cane. The dedication of the Executive-Director can be seen throughout this NGO and that is why I feel the Alliance will succeed in their present and future endeavors.

Not only is the concept of the PPAF sound, its executors are sincere, savvy and devoted.
In particular their work in Haiti is practical and helpful to development in that fascinating yet disaster-prone country. The Foundation and its supporters work with locals rather than coming in as outside do-gooders, and the provide them with the tools and finance to build themselves. Expatriate Haitians are bustling entrepreneurs and the Foundation helps reimport some of that energy and drive to their home country.

I have known Public-Private Alliance Foundation, PPAF, for several years, it is very well run by highly qualified individuals that have a long experience working at the UN in various development projects. They have excellent networking capacity with government agencies in several countries as well as connection to private enterprises, a great match-maker between the two, bringing real solution to solve a chronic problems that inflict the developing countries. They have excellent administration, very nice people to work with. Dr. David Stillman, the Executive Director, was our honoree at our Earth Day celebration a few years ago. I highly recommend the support to PPAF.

The Public-Private Alliance Foundation derives from the passion of the former General Manager of the UN Public-Private Alliance for Rural Development, who tirelessly tries to improve the life of underserved population in developing countries.

What I like about the PPAF is its sensibility to the environment that ensures a long lasting sustainable development, an example is the ethanol cook stove project – on one hand it helps save the tree, on the other the clean burning stove improves the health of the poor people.

For that reason I invited Dr. Stillman, founder and director, to exhibit and explain the ethanol cooking stove at our recent Earth Day celebration.

PPAF deserves our support.

PPAF is an excellent organization dedicated to deliver real results and impact by revitalizing the enviroment in Haiti from dry to green and by making a difference in women' lives. Their operation in Jacmel will set a great example for other regions in Haiti to understand the cost benefit and value added from using ethanol cookstove as opposed to burning charcoal.

PPAF works tirelessly and diligently to achieve its objectives. Their efforts are inspiring and serve to foster wide collaboration and support across organizations, age and other demographics. I am personally a supporter of PPAF, as well as, organizationally, a partner in the implementation of the clean fuels and cook stoves project for Haiti. Understanding the need for capacity-building and collaboration is critical to advance socio-economic development in Haiti as well as elsewhere, and PPAF's approach fosters such collaboartion in a respectful and mutually beneficial way. Vision, dedication, expertise -- PPAF.

As an intern this summer for PPAF, I can confidently say that the organization has made great strides towards their goal of introducing clean cookstoves to families in Haiti. This project demonstrates their dedication to finding practical and necessary ways to improve the lives of local people, as the new stoves are sustainable, safe, and affordable. There is no doubt that PPAF is making a difference in the places where they work because they are thorough in their time and research, ensuring that the final project outcome meets the needs of the targeted goal. I am proud to have worked with PPAF and be part of the exciting and important work in which they are involved.

In the short time that I have known the Public-Private Alliance Foundation, I have watched them change, save and transform lives both locally and abroad. They have given the rural poor a global voice with key policymakers and at the UN, and serve as a catalyst for multi-sector solutions for sustainable development. PPAF is currently piloting an innovative cookstoves promotion and distribution project in Haiti. This project is especially impactful for women and girls- whose health, households and livelihoods depend on access to efficient, clean cooking technology and fuel. I applaud the Public-Private Alliance for their outstanding efforts to empower individuals, improve communities and create a better world.
