safe stoves are improtant for the refugee women for many things:
Congratualations! in May 2018, our production groups in Darfur refugees' camp recieved 220 Safe Stoves as International Women's Day's Gifts.We began with the goal of supplying 7000 safe stoves to Darfur refugee Mothers . We've now dropped that number since we've been able to provide 1220 stoves mothers. Now, we committed to continue the Safe Stove project til we declear that Touloum camp free of traditonal stoves or Safe stoves in all shelters and can move to another camp.
This February 18, our Exective Director travelled to Darfur, Sudan. She said that she found a safe stoves in her family home and in many family members and neighbors.Our Exective Dirctor used that stoves to cook for family for three years. She said that the stove idea is same as the one the Darfur Women Network has provided to mothers in the camp.She said that the one in Nyala, Darfur, it is made of cement, sand, and small rocks. This stove is made to use charcoal as energy for cooking rather than firewood.The stove in Nayala, Darfur keeps that heat for very long time and use small amout of charcoal. It is very heavey and difficult for women to move it from place to another.
She was able to work with our Touloum to make safe stoves to celebrate Inernational Women's Day.Leader of the production group had recieved our request to make 220 Safe Stoves. However, in February 2018, the group pasponded making the stoves we requested becasue the group leader's son was very sick. She had to travelled to N'djamena to seek treatment for her only son. The group decided to make stoves after their group leader return. We respected their decsion.The group made the Safe Stoves in April. In May, our voluntee staff distributed the 220stoves to the refugee mothers. Those who recieved the stoves, they acknowledged that they are gifts as celebration of International Women's Day.The 1220 Mothers who recieved the safe stoves are happy for several reasons: They decrease their trip to collect firewood, they are safe, their children are safe, and the environment in their house becasue the safe stove dosen't produce much smoke during cooking process. Moreover, the production group also are very happy when they sold us the 220 safe stoves becasue they earn income and able to take care of their families.

Hello my friends,
Happy Holidays! Wish you and your family wonderful, peaceful, and lovely celebrations! We are grateful for your support.
Helping the survivors of Darfur genocide to grow their own food to reduce hunger is one of our goals. The refugees are grateful for your support and generosity. Two years ago, they were able to harvest enough crops to feed their families and to donate some to those who couldn’t grow their food due to their ages, disabilities, or lack of resources.
I would like to share with you a story from one of our volunteers who lives in a Darfur refugee camp. He and his three friends decided to work with a local community farmer. They agreed that the local farmer would provide land, seeds, tools, and food for them from the beginning of the farm work to the harvest. Our volunteer and his friends would do all the required farm work such as ploughing, cutting trees, planting seeds, and harvesting. After harvest, they sold their crops. Then, they subtract the cost of the farming to divide the profit. Half of the profit would go to the owner of the farm and the other half will be divided among the four friends.
Based on this agreement, the four friends left the camp to stay on the farm from the last week of May to December 22, 2018. They were optimistic about the opportunity. They hoped to earn money to bring to their families. The farm looked promising due to lots of rain and hard work. Unfortunately, our volunteer and his friends found out that the actual profit was less than expected.
The farm owner told them that after he sold the products the total income was less than the cost of producing the crops. He lost his money and there was absolutely no profit. Therefore, the four friends left the farm with nothing. It is extremely disappointing that they had to leave empty handed when they had high hopes.
Please help us by donating to help them grow their own food to ensure that they can bring it home to their families.
