The United Nations Development Program’s GEG Small Grant program is supporting an extension of the KIO Club’s “One Household Per Smokeless Stove Project and Distribution of Water Filters” project for households around the Marshall Islands.
KIO Club President Emma Kabua-Tibon and UNDP Program Manager Yoshiko Yamaguchi-Capelle signed the agreement earlier this week. The grand of $100,000 will support the smokeless stove project in its third phase, with distribution to all households on Jaluit, Kwajalein (including Santo, Mejatto, Ebadon, and other islands), Wotje, and Enewetak. The water filter project will be announced once it is finalized.
