In rural areas of Peru, traditional stoves trap smoke and cause bronchial diseases and premature death. Former Buffalo Grove resident Robert Klaber saw this and started the Strike Out Smoke program. They've now purchased more than 800 clean burning stoves for 13 Peruvian communities.

Robert Klaber is organizing the Strike Out Smoke program in partnership with The ProWorld Service Corps.
