Potential Energy http://www.potentialenergy.org/ stoves are the stoves original designed in the Berkley labs for Sudan (the Darfur region). They are an energy efficient stove designed with the cook's needs in mind.

They have recently added an orange 'cool mesh' to the outside of their metal stove to help protect the stove user (and their children) from burns. The second photo is of a stove field test, where ladies in Africa can see for themselves the advantages and disadvantages of several designs.

The Berkley stove is created out of metal and then shipped to local artisans who assemble the stove in the field. This video shows part of the process.

Improved cookstoves are used for diplaced persons in Ethopia, Darfur, Uganda and for Hurricane or Flood Victims.

World Food Program sets out to start the save stoves initiative. The initiative is focused on refugees and other poor women, and highlights the need for stoves to reduce time spent gathering firewood.

Initiative highlights:
"WFP’s Safe Access to Firewood and Alternative Energy in Humanitarian Settings (SAFE) project will scale up distribution of fuel-efficient and “improved mud” stoves to assist almost 100,000 women in North Darfur. These stoves consume less firewood and lower health risks associated with smoke."

"In Uganda, WFP will focus on refugees and pastoralists in the drought-hit Karamoja region. It will provide more than 35,000 households and 50 schools with fuel-efficient stoves, as well as helping women to find other sources of income."
