Project Description

Relief International, with support from UNICEF, is piloting a project to introduce and promote fuel efficient stoves among IDPs residing in camps in Mogadishu, Galkayjo and Afgooye in Somalia. The primary objective of the project is to improve the protection of women and girls who put themselves at risk of gender-based violence due to the time spent out collecting fuel which leaves them vulnerable to assault. There were many success to the project including : (1) 110 community providers trained who are worked with in a participatory manner to engage with them in the communities / assist in the intervention; (2) the goal of 20,000 stoves to distribute in the pilot project was surpassed to reach 20,200 stoves in total. Estimated that 130,000 women in Somalia still require access to fuel efficient stoves to reduce their risk to gender-based violence; (3) additional benefits include the reduction of tensions between IDP and host communities in the competition for scarce resources and the alleviation of overall environmental degradation from stove inefficiencies.
