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.
