Problem: People in camps for refugees and internally displaced persons spend 1/3 of their income on fuelwood, often skipping meals for lack of fuel.

Solution: An energy-saving metal cookstove adapted for local cooking traditions, and assembled from flat-kits that are easily stockpiled and deployed.

Impact: In Darfur, 27,000 stoves disseminated, benefiting 162,000 people.
