Dear Supporters,

We are thrilled with the progress with which your donations have enabled so many families to benefit from our 7,000 Safe Stoves for Refugee Mothers. 

In addition to the families who are now using safe stoves over traditional open fire stoves, women within the camps are have found a renewed sense of empowerment through their own manufacturing of these stoves. Each team of women have trained and worked to create a tool that can be produced from local materials and sold at an affordable price. This is incredibly powerful for both the community and each woman's individuality. 

This program continues to provide opportunity for safer ways of cooking, living and surviving in a most difficult situation. We are so grateful and humbled by the fortitude of the women who have worked so very hard to rebuild their lives for themselves and their families. 

We are also grateful for you and your continued support. Your support really does impact lives for the better!

To better measure our progress in numbers, designated DWN volunteers have traveled to Chad for this season to gather data and report directly from our Touloum Camp. We are anxiously awaiting their final reports on not only the 7,000 Safe Stoves program, but others as well. 

It's important to Darfur Women Network to visit the camps, speak with refugees and volunteers to provide the most reliable information about all of our programs. It's this one on one attention that helps us best assist those who are working daily to survive within the refugee camps. We will always be dedicated to our mission and look forward to continuing to do everything we can to support the safety and empowerment of women.

Thank you!

Hello Supporters!

We've seen an increase in the production of safe stoves despite the difficult seasonal challenges in Chad. Along with increased production, more famlies have acquired safe stoves for their homes. Our production groups have worked well together providing women with economic empowerment. Each group is made up of 50 women who have created 800 new units sold to DWN. We have in turn purchased and distributed those stoves to an additional 200 widows and 600 of the poorest families in the Touloum Camp.

We began with the goal of supplying 7000 stoves. We've now dropped that number since we've been able to provide over 1000 stoves since the inception of this project! With another 800 stoves produced and delivered, we're making great progress in our mission.

We couldn't do it without you, our supporters, and your generosity. We couldn't do it without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and the brave women working to create these stoves in Touloum. 

DWN is committed to continue the Safe Stove project til we get that number down to 0 for Touloum and can move to another camp.

Thank you for all of your support and we look forward to seeing what 2018 can deliver!

Hello our friends,

The Darfur Women Network,DWN, wishes you Happyy Holidays!

In 2017, we made extreme changes that impacted the survivors of the Darfur genocide in the refugee camp. The Solar Panel Project, our innovative project, improved the refugee’s lives.

Darfur Women Network (DWN) served 13 community centers by providing solar panels to replace firewood light for multiple purposes.

DWN provided waterproof sheets to cover the roofs made from local materials to ensure the continuation of services during the rainy season.

DWN provided rugs to sit on instead of sand. 

DWN has trained 26 refugees on the upkeep of the community center for multiple purposes.

DWN is thinking about using solar energy for cooking in the refugee camp during the summer. DWN needs practical solar cookers that can be appropriate for our cultural and/or traditional food. Any ideas are valuable to us and if there are any solar energy companies that share the same mission, please provide their information to DWN.

Safe Stoves

Now ran is stopped and the right time for the production groups to make safe stoves.  We are grateful for your generous donation and support.

 1200 Darfur refugee mothers received safe stove.  1200 women and girls reduced their trips to collect firewood by 75%. In the shelters, mothers are cooking food for their families without producing huge smoke during cooking process as when they used to cook on their traditional stoves.

Now, We are working with two students from Butler University to help us with this project.

Without your support, the refugee mothers production groups could not be able to make 1200 safe stoves to earn income  to take care  and the beneficiaries couldn't impact postively from this project.

.
You are our hope to continue reducing the trips of collecting firewood for more refugee women by 75%.
