Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village to follow up on the maintenance of the program facilities such as the construction of the kitchen roofs which were leaking, the firewood storages, smearing of the buildings and stove usage. When she arrived there, she went to the meeting place and found some members already gathered with their group leaders while waiting for other members to come. They welcomed her and together they sat down and first discussed about some challenges that some members were still facing while cooking on their fuel efficient stoves. A few of them still didn’t have kitchens although they were active in the rest of the program activities such as building stoves for fellow members. Other members complained saying that their stoves were not working very well because they were built at a wrong wing directions and also the openings needed to be enlarged a little bit so as to let the wind blow in and cook their food faster. Suzan requested the members whose stoves were working well to find time and assist other members to repair or rebuild their stoves so that they would also enjoy the benefits. Later after, they got up and visited those homes with poor facilities and during the process, Suzan kept on advising the members to improve on them especially to roof the kitchens which had less grass at the top and also put up the firewood storages so as to save firewood in times of scarcity. She also encouraged the members to always smear their stoves so that they would last longer and look neat all the time. The members thanked Kibo staff for the visit and advice given and they all wished each other happy stay.
