Harriet, Jeska and Tape found when the participants had started building stoves on their own. They said they could not wait for Kibo staff to start because they had lost some one in their village and they needed to finish building stoves early and they go and attend the funeral. Also the group trusted themselves that they can build stoves on their own and just wanted to surprise Kibo that they can do it without them. They built two stoves which were very good. Kibo staff thanked them for loving the program and proving that they have mastered the skill. They gave them a go a head to continue building stoves on their own since they have mastered the skill. The group thanked Kibo for empowering them with a skill and being patient with them despite them being slow learners. One man called Kaleka stood up in the meeting and said that for him he never had a kitchen for the last 10 years but the stove program helped him to understand the value of having a stove in a kitchen. This helped him to work hard to learn how to build stoves, built a kitchen and a stove for his family. He added that this is going to improve on his family health since his wife will not suffer from smoke , his children will be safe and will cook conformably.
