Fuel efficiency clay stoves when in use; they do not only conserve the environment but improve the health of women.

On 08- Feb - 2011 president Omer al-Bashir, issued a republican decree accepting the final results of referendum, which supports the separation of the South into an independent state. North and South Sudan are presently engaged in talks to resolve the sensitive issues, which includes sharing of oil revenues, demarcation of boarders, and the contested oil-rich Abyei region.

 We are thankful to our supporters for their contributions that helped Hope Ofiriha to train women in fuel –efficiency clay stove production skills. Because of your CASH we added ten women to receive training. By the end of 2011 we are planning to train 500 women to make 5000 fuel-efficiency clay stoves!

The 2010 was not productive because we wanted to train 1000 women but only 100 participants were train. The main reason was lack of funding. We hope 2011 will bring new donors so that several women are train.

When our fuel –efficiency clay stoves are in use, they do not only conserve the environment but improve the health of women, and young girls whose duties are to feed their families. Our clay stoves decrease the amount of deadly fumes that women and children breathe inside the homes and conserve the most fragile ecosystems by protecting forests. By using our clay stoves will also contribute to reduction in  wood fuel consumption by 60% per each family per year. We are serving more trees than before!

To keep up the momentum of this environmental –conserving project we need 20 people to give $10 each – or more on regular basis. Could you be one of these, please? If so please donate to “Stop Cookstoves from killing in south Sudan” – through GlobalGiving on monthly basis or one time donation.

In three months to come we will have lots of progress and the impact of the funds will be clearly demonstrated. We will to give you an update on how your contributions are making changes in the lives of poor women, children and the villages that they live in.

Thanks for joining hands with Hope Ofiriha!
