This project started well but due to donations short coming two women have to stop their training in the middle of the course. Your donations have made us come a long way. Most local Kitchens in Omilling Sudan can be simple be described as indoor dangerous fires. The smoke from these fires is so harmful that lower respiratory diseases are the most leading cause of illness among women. The escalating demand of firewood in Magwi County population leads to destruction of local forests. On June 16 2010 GlobalGiving will be matching at 50% all online donations up to 1,000 per donor per project! This campaign runs between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm EST (GMT-4).

In addition to the 50% match, GlobalGiving will be offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that same day a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from most individual donors!

We are encouraging you to make a donation on June 16 to take this opportunity of the matching funds in order to help Poor Sudanese women in Omilling villages to make the fuel efficiency wood burning clay to improve their lives, families, and ongoing incomes from the sale of clay stoves - and finally get them out of extreme poverty and live a healthier life.

Thanks for your ongoing support!
