ABOUT OXFAM AMERICA & THE DARFUR STOVES PROJECT (POTENTIAL ENERGY):
A portion of the proceeds will help Oxfam America, an international relief and development organization, continue to create lasting solutions to end poverty, hunger, and injustice. Together with individuals and local groups in more than 90 countries, Oxfam saves lives. Armed conflict in Darfur has uprooted more than 2.5 million people. Oxfam is working with Sudanese partners to provide clean water, agricultural support, tree seedlings, fuel-efficient stoves, and small business trainings and grants for people living in and around the crowded camps.
The Darfur Stoves Project was founded to improve the safety and livelihoods of women by providing fuel-efficient stoves which reduce firewood requirements, limit women’s exposure to violence during firewood collection and decrease the use of money and food rations to obtain fuel. The Darfur Stoves Project is the first initiative of the nonprofit organization Potential Energy. Potential Energy’s mission is to bring life-improving technologies to people in developing nations. Designed to optimize fuel-efficiency and reduce toxic emissions when cooking meals, a clean cookstove is one intervention that addresses almost all of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals: ending poverty and hunger; gender equity; child health; maternal health; and environmental sustainability. For half the world’s population, a clean cookstove means one less day of struggling to find enough wood to survive. It means increased safety, better health, less harm to the environment, a higher income, more time and increased employment. Learn more at oxfamamerica.org and potentialenergy.org.
