Project Description

Following the January 2010 earthquake, Lifeline began a year-long stove distribution program in and around Port-au-Prince. Partnering with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), Lifeline established a stove training and distribution program to reach the most vulnerable groups affected by the earthquake. The primary objective of the project was to improve food security for 3,500 displaced families through distribution of 7,000 improved stoves. Three issues that affected the outcomes of this project have been identified. These should be overcome in the future to ensure that the project is implemented successfully. First, sourcing local materials for stove production is very difficult in Haiti. In addition to being very expensive, the program needed to buy source materials in bulk to ensure production throughout the project. Second, delays in arrival of imported stoves created months of delays for distribution of stoves in selected camps. Finally, lack of roads and basic infrastructure made it difficult to reach identified communities for training and distribution of stoves. The locations of the projects were in Corail Camp ID 35, Gressier Fort Hugo Camp ID 36, Gressier Lambi 1 Camp ID 37, Hinche Camp ID 38, Ile-a-Vache Camp ID 39, Impasse Bazil Camp ID 40, Kan Balmir Camp ID 41, Kan Ben Germain Camp ID 42, Kan Radio Komerse Camp ID 43, KayKok Camp ID 44, Les Elus de Dye Camp ID 45, Nerette Camp ID 46, OnaVille Camp ID 47, Santo 17 Camp ID 48, Sineas Camp ID 49, Tabarre Isa Camp ID 50, and Tabarre Isa Dehors Camp ID 51 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
