There are barely any jobs at all in any of the camps. When an NGO decided to tackle the problem of the firewood in Camp Kounoungo, they decided to employ refugees to make iron ovens. These iron ovens use firewood, but they use less than half what the refugees normally use with their three stone ovens. By employing refugees, they make them part of the solution and invested in making it work. In Kounoungo, walking the camp is so fascinating. It has evolved in to some kind of a hybrid between a refugee camp and a village, but never quite home. [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
