Doug Thompson from the Stratford Club and David Knoppert form the Hyde Park club brought us up to date with projects underway by Commit in Nicaragua.  Doug talked about the importance of environmental action and encouraged members to join ESRAG.  David talked about the Justa stove project they are working on.  The Justa stove ( a rocket stove) can be installed for approximately $300 and cuts the wood fire fuel consumption in half while reducing respiratory illness, eye issues, and burns.  The stove also has a metal cooking surface improving the cooking function.  David is currently cycling across Canada to raise fund and interest in this project.  We were able to reach him near St Johns Nfld close to the end of his journey.
