The past three weeks many Pop Wuj students have volunteered their time to help out with construction of safe stoves on Wenesday mornings.

So far we have completed the construction of one stove and started the construction of four more. The building process takes place in three stages. In the first stage, the base of the stove is built using cinder blocks and cement.
In the second stage, three layers of bricks are added onto the base and are held together by cement and a mixture of clay "barro" and "panela" (unrefined whole cane sugar).
