Project Description

Relief International (RI) aimed to teach 45,000 Darfurian refugee women in Darfur, Sudan, how to build and utilize fuel efficient stoves in order to reduce the need for women to engage in the dangerous activity of collecting firewood by 40% and protect women and children from harmful smoke inhalation. For faster implementation, RI launched a Trainer of Trainers program to teach 9,000 IDP women how to manufacture fuel efficient stoves and how to train women in other villages and camps how to build efficient cookers as well. The primary goal is to reduce the need for women to engage in the dangerous activity of collecting firewood by 40%. Specific objectives include: (1) train IDP women how to manufacture stoves and how to train other women to build them as well; (2) teach a total of 45,000 Darfurian refugee women how to build and utilize fuel efficient stoves. There are 9,000 IDP women in the Trainer of Trainers program. The stoves use nearly half the amount of fuel wood that traditional stoves use. Women are able to gain skills to pass on to other women, impacting their own self esteem and personal empowerment. Women do not need to use as much fuel wood while cooking and can therefore reduce trips spent collecting fuel or buy smaller amounts of fuel in the local market.
