Your strong support and generous donations provide safe stoves for Darfur refugee women and children who live in the Touloum, Chad refugee camp. Having safe stoves on site reduces by 75 percent the number of trips the women must make outside the camp to collect firewood, which greatly reduces the risks of rape and hostile attacks.
The rain is still falling. The production groups are waiting for green light to start producing safe stoves. We are counting on year-end -campaign to raise money to continue our work. Our social media recived our request to prepare for this coming campiagn. Our staff is planning to develop strategy to raise enough money to provide service for those who are on our waiting list.
Help us make a life-saving difference in the fight against rape and risks associated with using traditional stoves. Every $10 counts toward giving Darfur mothers a safe stove and opportunity to create healthy and safe homes and to enable economic empowerment.
Darfur Women’s Network (DWN) also wants to share what we recently learned from the Social Impact Academy, a training program run by non-profit experts courtesy of our partner GlobalGiving. During the two-month program, DWN defined its needs and resources. DWN identified and recruited professional volunteers in different areas such as social media, education, fitness, and nutrition. Please check our social media links, “Like” us, comment, and share with your network.
