Annual Report-2014

Dear friends,

On behalf for Darfur Women Network (DWN) I would like to express my gratitude for your willingness to support DWN to provide an excellent service throughout 2014.

I am excited that Fall season came with its white dress which is a sign of happiness in Darfur, Sudan.  On our last report, we share with you the impact that your generous donation made on the survivors of Darfur genocide in refugees camp in Chad.

There are four main impacts:

  1.  Giving away safe stoves for no cost
  2.  Forest preservation
  3.  Economic empowerment and self-transformation
  4.  Capacity building

 I am certain that your support during Year-End-Campaign will help us to provide more safe stoves, protect more women and girls, improve health and safe lives of more children and adult, and help more women to earn income to feed their children and send them to school.

We are grateful with our partnership with Globalgiving and you to achieve our mission.

I am supper excited because, we received four volunteers’ applications this last week.

 

 

We expected to have your generous donations in our account by January and immediately, we will give order to refugee women to make more safe stoves during this season, it is the best season to make stoves because there is no rain and it is cold that helps stoves to dry faster, however, water could be challenge.

You would find our annual report here please, review and reflect on our 2014 projects and on moving forward in 2015,please give us feedback to improve our work and to double your impact.

 Dear friends, 

I am so glad to share with you our update repost. first, let me thank you for your generous donation and support that allows us to serve the survivors of Darfur genocide in their refugees camp,Touloum , Chad. 

 

DarfurWomen Network (DWN) is a 501c3 tax exempt, US based, Darfurian-led non-prot organization, whose mission is dedicated to working collectively with immigrants and survivors of genocide from Darfur in refugee camps to determine their needs and work together to fulll their needs for recovery and transformation, based on the principle of education, awareness, and economic empowerment. Together we CAN make a difference!

The Darfur refugees in Chad were farmers before they ed Sudan in 2003.They are depending on theWorld Food Program for food, which hardly

covers their need. Rations are low because the food distribution from theWorld Food Program used

to feed 4 people. Now it has to feed 12 people. Malnutrition is a tragic epidemic among children

that live in the camp due to them being located in the desert.

 

During my visit to theTouloum refugee camp, I witnessed numerous children with malnutrition.The food that is distributed within the camp is sorghum, lentils, and oil, with the absence of any income generating sources in the camp. It is hard to find something to purchase in their market. I went to the market in the camp, and I found very few commodities.What commodities I did nd were outrageously priced.  For example, there was only one display selling goat meat. I experienced hunger eating the sameAsida (made from the sorghum) as the refugees because they have no other choice.As a result, we call on you for your urgent assistance to establish small-scale farming and home gardening projects to allow these refugees to produce their own food.The project will provide over 1,000 refugee families with rented land, seeds, equipment, and the investment to grow their own food and to empower themselves.

Farming and cultivating their own crops is a powerful mission to transfer the refugees from hunger and dependency to self-sufficiency.

 

  • We have already transferred some refugees to one of our ongoing projects, Safe Stoves for Darfur Mothers, an economic empowerment project that started early in 2014.
  • Chadian authority supports and encourages agriculture sector to connect with the local people to raise their awareness about the benet of sharing or renting their land to the refugees from Darfur.

 

 

Together we will make a difference!
