The PPAF steps up to the plate as new demands and opportunities are given to it. As part of its continuing effort to replace wood burning stoves in Haiti with sustainable cook-top stoves, it has expanded its efforts of providing ethanol based cook-top stoves to include solar cookers. The solar cookers have been found to provide the indirect benefit of also enabling women to start a small business in their village as local bakers of bread and cakes, or meals for local workers and similar cooking opportunities. This results in a source of income for their family, and a boost to the local village economy.
PPAF is working with local Haitian alcohol producers to encourage the local distilleries to produce the 90 to 95% ethanol to provide a cost effective supply of ethanol for use with the ethanol cook-top stoves.
The PPAF is an organisation that not only wants to do go for people, but wants to involve the people that they benefit, so that they in turn are involved to help others with the same need. The focus of their project is not to hand out a benefit, but to address a need that also solves other social and environmental problems.
Tremendous commitment to the loftiest of missions. PPAF relies on an impressive network of private and public sector leaders to make positive change happen. This is a truly great nonprofit.
David and Ginger are committed, competent and creative in finding ways to build win-win partnerships that promote empowerment and economic development. They bring decades of experience and never give up on the communities they are trying to help.
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
This organization is doing great work for human health and the environment by promoting clean cookstoves in Haiti.
PPAF is devoted to helping both people and the environment by promoting clean, ethanol-based cookstoves. Their current focus is Haiti, where the need is enormous. A very worthwhile cause!
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.
