Dear Friends of Project Gaia,
We are so grateful for your support this year. Donors like you have helped us expand our clean household energy projects around the world. Each year, we make it possible for more deserving families to access clean, modern, safe cookstoves and fuels.
But we have more work to do - - and you can help. Nearly half of the world’s population still depends on polluting solid biomass fuels.
*Project Gaia, Inc., is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
Your contribution means healthier lungs, safer homes and priceless time freed up to dedicate to loved ones.
Let’s make 2014 a year with fewer families in energy poverty.
