Dear donors and friends,

On behalf of Darfur Women Network (DWN) and 29,000 survivors of Darfur genocide who are living in the refugees’ camp in Chad, I would like to thank you for your generosity that protect 202 women and girls from rape and other risks and generate income for 50 refugee families in the camp. Today, we to call upon you to support the refugee women to transfer themselves from dependency to self-sufficiency while they are produce safe stoves to protect their sisters in the camp. We call on you because we believe that you are:

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.


 Through our report on December 1st ,  we share with you safe stoves making process by our production groups in their camps. It was beginning with mixing of ingredients to make dough, building stoves and shaping it, and opening of two windows, the bigger one for firewood, and the smaller window for air. The 7000 Safe Stoves project designed to empower refugees with skills training in Income Generation Activities to enable them to become self-sufficient both in the camp and upon return to their home country.

Let us walk together through the impact of your contributions make on 202 refugee families, one impact during each report:

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

 

The first positive impact of “ Giving away safe stoves for no cost” on the survivors of genocide is about protecting women and girls, reducing physical assault and fatigue, decreasing health risk, and increase safely, 202 MOTHERS who received safe stoves with no cost by August 25, 2014, are now:

  • Protecting women and girls: Protect them from rape and physical assault by reducing their frequency trips to the forest to collet firewood to 70%.
  • Reducing physical assault and fatigue: Reduce the fatigue of walking long distance for big wood. Safe stove is efficient and consumes little amount of firewood and small branches.
  • Decrease the health risks of 202 families who used to use traditional stoves that consume enormous amount of firewood and produce huge smoke during cooking process. are now living in healthy shelters
  • Increasing safely:  Increase the safety by eradicating the danger of children and houses burn by replacing 202 traditional stoves that always cause burning.

Dear donors and friends,                                                             December 1st,2014

On behalf of Darfur Women Network (DWN) and the refugee women and girls who received safe stoves in August 2014, I would like to invite you to join our year-end-campaign to raise money to protect and empower more refugee women and girls.

Your support helped us to form production groups of refugee women to produce safe stove to sell to us in order to distribute the stove with no cost to women in the camp. The group of women strive to collect the raw materials to build stoves. They have to search for mud, donkeys’ dong, and water. Then, they transfer the ingredients to the production location on their heads and their donkeys.

 Your support of this project positively impacted the survivors of Darfur genocide in their refugees’ camp in Chad in many ways.

Please watch this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Te4s8Otad8) to see how you made a difference. During December, I will send weekly reports to discuss your impact on the cause that you are passionate about and supported.

We are also thankful for our partnership with GlobalGiving for their great service and connection.

Dear friends,

Our project, 7000 Safe Stoves for Darfur Refugee Mothers’ Project, aims to provide Darfur refugee families in Touloum Camp in Chad with safe stoves and cooking techniques as well as solar cookers in summer time to help the refugees in many ways such as: protecting women and girls from rape due to use of little amount of firewood with our safe stove; using solar cooker in summer with 99% protection from rape, reducing the smoke during the process of cooking, and increase the chance of safety  inside the shelters.

Update: in June our staff will travel to the refugee camp to build the foundation of our projects in the camps with concentration on Safe Stoves Project that we will test its specification with relation to some important factors such as to be practical, culturally accepted, efficient, and convinced for the refugee women to adopt it without hesitation. The stove is needed now more than ever due to increasing of violence against women and girls who collect firewood from the forest and due to escalating of genocide activities in Darfur.   

The staff and the refugees will start with small participatory group to create, test, and discuss the final result and recommendation to put the foundation of the project in place. This means that the work will be done with first group/team leaders are training to learn how to create stoves, using cooking techniques to make food in less time and use less wood.

You will be updated from the field by any available communication via our office in USA.
