In September 2018, 2,200 COMET1 stove parts were delivered to the Assosa Refugee Camps in western Ethiopia. Local associations have since completed a training program and have commenced assembly and sales of the stoves. This initiative is creating livelihoods from stove assembly as well as from stove and fuel sales. The project is being managed by Project Gaia’s Ethiopia affiliate, Gaia Association and is sanctioned by ARRA and UNHCR.
