Fuel-efficient stoves free displaced Somali women from risky firewood dutyListen /
A new project providing fuel-efficient stoves to displaced families in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, is literally a life saver.
As the stoves burn waste instead of wood, women and girls are freed from the potentially dangerous chore of collecting firewood where they risk being assaulted by attackers hiding in bushes.
The project is supported by the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) and its partners, who also train and employ 150 families to produce the stoves.
