Environment and sustainability

Les journees portes ouvertes organisees par l`ONU Femmes etaient une grande opportunite pemettant aux femmes d`exposer leurs differentes initiatives. Plusieurs organisations feminines avaient presentees leurs productions agricoles, artisanales, culturelles,,,
Notre structure avait presente les echantillons des briquettes que nous essayons de fabriquer sur base des dechets de sciage de planche, y compris plusieurs modele types de brazerros, moins polluants et qui economise la braise pour un modele. Les autres echantillons ont ete concu pour utiliser ces dechets soit a l`etat brut, soit deja transforme en briquettes, sans les melanger aux braises.
Notre souci en nous engageant dans l`energie durable, c`est tout simplement pour pallier la deforestation qui a pris son empleur au sein de la province et dont les consequences commencent a se faire sentir.
Nous sollicitons des appuis necessaires aupres de world pulse pour la vulgarisation de la reutilisation de ces sous produits des menus forestiers qui autrefois etaient tout simplement jetes a la poubelle. Partant de cette reutilisation, les beneficiaires de ce projet auront a economiser chaque mois le prix d`un sac de braise qu`elles payaient a 25 dollars chaque mois.
D`autre part, la deforestation sera evitee, les emissions de gaz a effet de serre seront reduites, la production en oxygene sera garantie. La faune et la flore seront proteges, bref, l`ecosysteme sera toujours en equilibre constant.

The Open Door days organized by UN Women were a great opportunity to allow women to present their different initiatives. Many women organizations presented their agricultural, small-scale, cultural products. Our organization presented briquette samples that we are trying to make from wood shavings, as well as many other alternatives less harmful to the environment that will economize the firewood. The other samples were conceived to use garbage whether at the brut stage or already transformed into briquettes without being mixed to firewood.
Our goal in engaging in sustainable energy is simply to mitigate the scale and the visible effects of the deforestation that have taken place in the province. We are soliciting the necessary support to of world pulse to make more comprehensible the recycling of those products of the forests that used to be turned into garbage. From that reutilization the benefits of this project will be to save on the monthly bill of firewood that costs $25 per month. On the other hand the deforestation will be eschewed, greenhouse gas emission will also be reduced, the production of oxygen will be positive and guarantied. Wild life and plant life will be protected; the ecosystem will be restored in equilibrium.
