Entrepreneurism is all about the unexpected twists and turns and the way you handle them. It's been a very busy time, pivoting and re-planning constantly! After a lengthy ordeal obtaining our shipment of stove parts from customs, we finally received our parts. We want to give a special thanks and our utmost gratitude to Jocelyn C. Caraig, Levy Balderas, Francis Uy, Eduardo Gatab, and the staff at UPS Cebu for going above and beyond their call of duty and delivering our package to us in as timely a manner as possible.
Even though we were unable to execute exactly according to plan, our pilot study is still moving forward and taking off! The families have been very excited with the arrival of their stoves and have been using them.
Things are looking good as we continue with our pilot study. Everyday is a learning experience, and we look forward to the feedback we receive to improve KleanCook and make it the best it can be.
We went through a tough, yet exciting, journey of assembling the KleanCook, and now it’s almost ready for distribution for our pilot study in the Philippines!
We’ll be able to carry out our CGI U Commitment to Action by providing 10 stoves to 10 families, so keep a lookout for updates on our progress.
