The Darfur Stoves Project envisions a world where cooking doesn’t kill. We aim to create a market-based distribution network for fuel-efficient cookstoves that will improve lives and create long-term jobs and economic opportunities in Darfur and beyond.

Assault during firewood collection is a continuous threat faced by displaced women in Darfur. The Darfur Stoves Project seeks to improve the safety of women by providing fuel-efficient stoves that require less than half as much fuel than traditional cooking methods, thus reducing firewood requirements, thereby limiting exposure to unsafe areas.
