T3 with Haiti
The faith-based mission of T3 with Haiti is the collaborative development of globally competitive education in Haiti using information technology, emphasizing the research and implementation of sustainable efforts.
The intent of this program in Haiti is to:
â€¢ Continue to introduce the concepts of clean burning cookstove technology.
â€¢ Continue the discussions of the benefits of alternative fuels, sustainable fuels, and clean burning cookstoves to offset health related issues, deforestation, and erosion.
â€¢ Demonstrate the diversity of design and materials suitable for this technology, including the introduction of prefabricated stoves to example the level of design sophistication that may be achievable in Haitian design and fabrication.
â€¢ Continue to demonstrate the advantages of global collaboration and information sharing available using modern Information Technologies (IT) to aid Haitians in fostering and developing adaptable and sustainable solutions to the difficulties faced in Haiti.
â€¢ Continue to introduce the possibility and encourage the research of affordable, farmable, and sustainable biomass cooking fuels. Preferably, fuels such as bamboo and others exampled by the developments of Clenergen, http://www.clenergen.com/
â€¢ Continue the discussions of establishing a Trade and Technology School that may focus on the development and training needed to research, design, fabricate, distribute, and teach clean burning cookstove technology on a regional and then national level in Haiti.

Biomass (Ag. Residue, Processed Biomass, etc.), Charcoal
Clean Cooking Activities
Currently in Haiti with Rotary Clubs and Volunteers, and to a lesser extent with a local Catholic Parish in the USA, T3 with Haiti is actively involved with the following:
â€¢ Establishment and continued operational support of a Computer Lab at a 400 student Primary School providing weekly classes, 5th through 8th Grade. This is the only lab of its type in this area of Haiti.
â€¢ Installation and continued operational support of a 10kW generator for the Primary School that provides electrical service to the school and convent, including power to a well house that supplies pressurized clean water for the students and staff.
â€¢ Continued support of other the water supply, electrical, and communication systems in Haiti.
â€¢ Introduction of open-source operating systems and software such as Ubuntu.
â€¢ Providing an ongoing supply of refurbished and repurposed laptop computers for distribution in Haiti.
â€¢ Introduction of Information Technology and research that may bring applicable and sustainable ideas to Haiti, as exampled by the introduction of clean burning cookstove technology (Rocket Stoves).
â€¢ Introduction and demonstration of a proof of concept for clean burning cookstove technology, July 2011. Since introduction, three similar stoves have been attempted in Haiti with the tools and concepts provided.
â€¢ Introduction of drip irrigation, composting, and bottle lights.
â€¢ Installation of a permanent Just-a-Stove with roof vented flue system, April 2012. Since its installation, the stove has been used for household cooking and in the preparation of meals for a preschool with 150 children. The stove is reported to work well utilizing a variety of biomass fuels, including dried banana leaves which would otherwise be unusable as a cooking fuel. The only negative comment has been that regular tending is required to maintain temperature. Lastly, it is reported that an additional stove has been attempted by our Haitian contacts with the tools, materials, and concepts provided from the April 2012 trip.
