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.
The PPAF unlike lots of other groups i have seen, actually delivers a useful and important service to people who need it most. PPAF helps provide ethanol stoves (among other things) to groups in the most impoverished parts of the world -- Haiti, Africa, etc. Preventing women and girls from COPD, being attacked in bush looking for oher fuel sources, etc. I have been amazed at the dedication and sincerity of the group and its members and volunteers.
