About this Campaign

In response to the challenges faced by IDPs around the use of firewood for cooking and to further contribute in the advocacy for the reduction in deforestation and felling of trees with its attendant effect on climate change and greenhouse effects, CLHEI initiated the idea of locally fabricated stoves that will utilize rice husks as the basic source of cooking fuel.
This was borne out of the idea to reduce total dependence on firewood with its daunting effect on the environment, the challenges encountered by the IDPs in the search of firewood for cooking in far away hinterlands around the host community, as well as the potential to recycle rice husks through the use of local binders to mold briquettes which will serve as alternative cooking fuel for IDPs.

Only 60 Households in the Abagena IDP Camp out of 8 camps in Benue and an estimated population of 1.7 million displaced persons were exposed to this intervention, and there’s the need to scale up the intervention to other IDP Camps and a larger number of households and also carryout a capacity building training on the production of briquettes through the recycling of rice husks.

Use of Funds

The funds will be used to produce 500 fabricated stoves that will be distributed to 500 households living in IDP Camps and also carryout a capacity building training on the production of briquettes through the recycling of rice husks in Benue State, North-central, Nigeria.
