Dear Friends,

As 2017 comes to a close, I want to wish you and yours an enjoyable and festive holiday season. It's been another strong year, as highlighted in the Alliance's newly-released 2017 Progress Report. While our work is far from finished, we've shared many successes, and I look forward to working together in 2018 to achieve even more.

None of this progress would be possible without the expertise, advocacy, engagement, and support of our donors, partners, and advisers. I thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to making clean cooking a reality for all.

We've come a long way. We're making real progress. Let's put our feet on the accelerator to drive this sector and market forward.

Our work continues,
