Darfur

Lifeline has provided fuel-efficient stoves to
16,000 families uprooted by violence

Since 1990, Darfur has lost one-third of its forest cover. Desertification has reduced living standards and contributed to the intense competition for scarce resources that underlies the present crisis. Women frequently have to walk more than three hours to collect wood – exposing them to the risk of rape and other forms of violence. To address these problems, Lifeline launched its first humanitarian stove project in Darfur in mid-2006 with the aim of slowing deforestation, building the capacity of local women and reducing their exposure to gender-based violence. Over the next two years, Lifeline produced 16,000 fuel efficient stoves and provided training in stove construction and usage to women in IDP camps in El Fasher, Kabkeybia, Tawila, Shengal Tobayi and El Geneina.
