Project Description

The ZOA program in Dollo Ado, Ethiopia sought to decrease tension over local resources between the host community and the refugee community. Members of both communities were targeted through livelihood and environmental interventions. A major component of the project was the distribution of fuel-efficient stoves. In total, 6,500 stoves were distributed and the recipients were trained on how to use the stoves. The overall goal was to decrease tension over local resources between the host community and refugee community. Specific objectives included reducing firewood consumption, ensuring refugee children could go to school, and enhancing livelihood activities for refugee and host communities. The project distributed stoves to host and refugee communities. Those who received the stoves were trained on how to use them. Women reported that the ZOA stoves cooked faster and that those who used them were less exposed to risks connected with wood collection outside of the camps. The project took place in Kobe Camp ID 30 in Dollo Ado, Somali Region, Ethiopia.
