The Berkeley Darfur Stove® is four time more efficient than traditional 3-stones fires and two times more efficient than clay stoves. The efficiency and design of the stove has many benefits including:
- less time outside of the camps collecting fuel wood, reducing the risk of exposure to rape.
- fully enclosed flames reducing the danger of the dense straw and stick shelters from burning down.
- reduction of smoke production compared to other stoves, reducing smoke inhalation and lung disease.
- saving time by cutting down fuel wood treks, allowing women to pursue income generating opportunities.
