Darfur Stoves Effort in Progress

A recently launched Global Giving web page describes a plan to reduce hardship in the Sudan. EETD Researchers developed, in cooperation with local inhabitants and aid organizations, the Berkeley-Darfur Stove, a low-cost technology that will help minimize violence against women, increase disposable incomes, and reduce environmental degradation (http://darfurstoves.lbl.gov/). The stoves require 75% less fuel than current stoves, and reduce exposure to rape, hunger, physical hardship, and humiliation.
