Project Description

Integrated as part of the livelihood programme, the SAFE project targeted women who were at risk of gender - based violence (GBV) through dissemination of fuel efficient stoves to limit the risks associated with firewood collection in Karamoja region of Uganda. The primary objective of the project is to reduce the vulnerability of women to protection risks through the dissemination of fuel-efficient stoves, while ensuring environmental protection. The project is considered a success as the stove was adopted and utilized by the target households. The primary lesson learnt from this project is that there should be more Training-of-Trainers (ToTs) programs at the local level.
