I have been associated with PPAF for the past few years and thework being done to help women and girl child in low socio economic environments is incredible.
The entire team is dedicated to helping communities improve their living conditions and lead more productive lives .
I have been associated with PPAF for the past 5 years and have been working with my students on projects on clean cooking stoves.

Cooking shouldn't be a health hazard. PPAF has been working for clean, safe, affordable cooking in Haiti for many years and knows the issues and challenges. I'm proud to be a board member and happy to support the cause and the organization.
PPAF works tirelessly to implement clean, safe cooking in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. They promote sustainable development with clean-burning cookstoves that provide improved health, support for women and children, environmental protection, and local income-generating livelihoods. This organization deserves our support.
PPAF has supported travel to Haiti for expertise in bio-digestion. This has resulted in several
locations having biogas for cooking. Support for solar cooking is also making possible reduction of huge mountains of wood used for cooking by the World Food Program in Kenya by demonstrating efficiency and effectiveness of solar cookers.
Works hard to promote clean cooking options for Haiti. Includes
ethanol, solar, and biogas in supported fuels for Haiti which needs all
of the above!
My MPH students and I have recently interacted with the PPAF where the Foundation shared insights and approaches to using local efforts to effectively address global concerns. The continuing success of their groundbreaking project bringing innovative and healthy cook stoves has been an inspiration to all of us. The students were particularly moved by PPAF’s powerful demonstration of the enduring changes that can stem from individual efforts. I am sure that seeing the results of the PPAf’s efforts will continue to motivate the students throughout their careers as public health professionals.
PPAF is a not for profit with passiona nd power to make a difference. I have had the opportunity of working with PPAF on their amazing cooking stoves project . This project has been contributing to empowering the lives of many women and restoring their dignity. I think this is a great example of a grassroots project which has garnered tremendous support from all the stakeholders in taking it to the next step. Any donation made is for a truly worthy cause
PPAF is a not for profit who has gone way beyond the regular not for profits , the founders and board members are striving 24/ 7 to improve the lives of women and families who are disenfranchised. It is not an exaggeration to say that it has changed many lives by being a beacon of hope. The work they do is really inspiring and is having a ripple effect in that it laying a strong foundation for sustainability. Thisd is a role model for a not for profit in terms of leadership and service delivery
I have been a pro bono "senior fellow" at PPAF for several years and have witnessed the foundation's evolution. They have moved from being primarily an organizer of conferences into becoming an important facilitator between development projects and business. Much of this work has been done most recently in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
PPAF has had a focus on finding alternative energy solutions for the developing world. From several early conferences of experts at the UN, they have assembled expertise in the field which has helped them to implement their "clean cookstove" initiative which is helping Haiti with a more environmentally healthful alternative to current cookstoves.
In addition, they have enlisted a Haitian-American business group, SimACT, to assist in restoration and economic development of a historically significent town (UNESCO Listed) which has been partially damaged by the earthquake. Projects which have been identified are now in the process of implementation.
