Estufas Chispa manufactures and distributes high-quality, affordable cooking solutions for Guatemalan families. We build our stoves in Ciudad Vieja, Sacatepéquez and distribute nation-wide in partnership with with NGOs, local governments and community projects as well as through direct sales.
Our mission is to reduce the negative health impacts of open-fire cooking by providing high-quality, affordable and culturally appropriate clean-cooking solutions for Guatemalan households.
Our vision is a clean-cooking solution in every Guatemalan home.
We manufacture and distribute household cooking solutions.
Household air pollution caused by open-fire cooking is a leading cause of premature death and respiratory disease in Guatemala. Our fuel efficient cookstoves reduce the negative health impacts of open-fire cooking by eradicating smoke from homes and businesses. Stoves can also save upwards of 3 tons of carbon dioxide each year compared to open fire cooking.
Our impact is that we have eradicated smoke from over 16000 homes since 2013.
We measure impact by tracking units sold, plus by completing stove testing in the field and carrying out further lab tests.
