March 8: Second tin home with Eco-stove completed

As of today our team has completed 2 tin houses and a kitchen with an Eco-stove in it. Because of the generosity of our donors we are able to purchase many Eco-stoves for families in need (see photo of the Eco stove in the kitchen we made on the side bar). Working with the families on these homes is inspiring!

Last night we were invited to the home of one of the founders of Open Windows which is the organization partnered with Developing World Connections that we are in San Miguel Duenas to help.
Last night our group was invited to have dinner at the home of the founder of Open Windows. A great opportunity to learn more about the NGO and important the DWC volunteers like our group are to families here.Two of Open Windows's board members were there. They were blown away by the donations that Hopewell brought for Open Windows and to those from our donors providing much needed assistance through home building, kitchens and eco-stoves.
Tomorrow we will continue to work on the brick home while some people will be painting the interior of Open Windows.
