We urgently require fund raising which will enable us to make 20 Large Clean Cooking Stoves for the Refugees from Burundi in Kibondo Refugee Camps in the Kigoma District, Tanzania. This will help attenuate the burden of Women who are Cooking on stones and getting smoke in their eyes (which is life consuming). Also it will help conserve the environment by enabling us to avoid much wood consumption. Currently we are very limited in what we can produce due to lack of resources (tools, paid labour, materials) and the constraints of working outdoors in times of heavy rainfall. The money would allow us to set up a workshop from which we could cope with the demands of providing support to the Refugee Camps. Furthermore, this will help provide jobs and help restoring freedom, dignity & independence to the Refugees.

My name is Paul O'Donovan, I'm a Designer and Web Developer (www.paulodonovan.net). I became involved in fundraising for impoverished / underpriviliged communities in Tanzania when I volunteered to help a friend, Brigitte Baumann (HORIZONT3000 https://www.linkedin.com/in/brigitte-baumann-11295a82) by working as the Web Developer for the MAVUNO non-governmental organisation in Tanzania. In 2014 we launched the www.mavunoproject.org Website which helped to raise funding for building a school and rain water tanks with support from Betterplace donations. HUDERES is in the same region as MAVUNO and my contact there is Derick Katunzi (Executive Secretary - HUDERES, Mob: +255 788687419, huderestz@gmail.com). My work was recommended to HUDERES by another volunteer at MAVUNO, Eva Svanberg (Engineers Without Borders https://www.linkedin.com/in/eva-svanberg-01aa2048). Eva worked on Solar panel installations at Mavuno Girls Secondary school in Karagwe, Tanzania. Derick contacted me and applied for a Website which is now live at www.huderes.org
