The demand for the stove among the internally displaced people (IDPs) is high because the stove is durable,...

    One Woman's Story
    By - Robert Lankenau - Darfur Field Director
    Halima came to the IDP camp three years ago with her husband and 6 children. She received a fuel-efficient stove in June 2007. The new stove model meant that she was able to reduce her expenses on fuel-wood by two-thirds. Her household savings immediately saw a dramatic increase. By the end of the third week, she could...

      SaBeana21 The photo really personalizes the story, and I'm glad you attached it. I wanted to know a little more about Halima's life before she got the fuel efficient stove, but otherwise this is fairly informative.

    Engineer Arrives in Darfur to Begin Stove Production
    By - Michael Helms - Visiting Engineer
    The temporary camps in Darfur have seen their populations increase as more internally displaced people (IDPs) arrive every day. Food is cooked in pots on wood fires outside of simple shelters.

      Patricia B. I was very pleased to hear that you also were seting up a metal stove factory, that will give people work that they need so much.

      JLS It's really great to get on-the-ground details of how the project is going. It helps donors feel more involved in what is happening right now. It helps overcome the sense of separation that you can feel from being on the other side of the world - and feeling connected helps with giving to the project.

Due to the arid environment and population in the camps fuelwood, which is necessary for cooking food and tea, has become limited in supply. This forces many women...
