Project Description

To reduce the need for firewood, UNICEF Somalia and partners are supporting two projects providing fuel efficient stoves to displaced girls and women throughout Mogadishu, Somalia. The projects seek to reduce girls' vulnerability by assault and to free up their time, thereby enabling them to return to school.The other objective is to provide families with income as stove producers. " As of July 2012, the project was in the process of distributing more than 16,000 stoves for vulnerable families to reduce or eliminate need to collect firewood and 150 families have been equipped with abilities to make stoves at stove-making workshops. These workshops also teach participants how to run their businesses."
