Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Jeska and Tape went to Nawampiti village to continue teaching participants how to practically build stoves. They reached in the village and found the participants already waiting at the meeting place. The participants had already identified the member who was to get a stove that day. Kibo staff asked the participants to walk with her to home where a stove was going to built. Interestingly this home had all the home facilities like a pit latrine, a kitchen, a shower area in place and were well smeared . This were the standard requirements set before some one gets a stove. Kibo staff asked the participants to bring the materials that were to be used to build stoves at the site.These materials were grass, termite dirt, water, a hoe, a shovel, a panga, water and a basin . Kibo staff asked the participants to mix the dirt and grass at a ratio of 2:1 basins, sprinkled water into the dirt. Kibo staff together with the participants stamped the dirt, made small balls out of the dirt and they moved it into the kitchen where the stove was going to be built. Kibo staff built a stove as the participants were watching, they also asked them to ask questions where they did not understand because the goal of this program is to ensure that they learn how to build stoves so that they can build for others in and outside their community. At the end the stove was successfully built and Kibo staff went a head to remove banana stems from the previously built stove. They also asked the participants to join them watch the process. Kibo staff removed the banana stems, removed the dirt that was stuck inside to allow easy flow of fire,oxygen that will light fire and venting out smoke. Kibo staff thanked those ones who attended, left them with an assignment to mobilize more people to attend, and to stamp the dirt that they will use to build the next stove.They asked them to stamp the dirt the Monday morning before Kibo reaches their village. This will save them time ,also give them a chance to participate because practice makes perfect and a sign that they love the program.
