Total Attendance
Harriet reached in this village when it had just stoped raining. A few people who had come for the meeting had gone back because they could not stay in rain and also needed to go back home and remove their crops that they had put outside to dry so that they are not rained on. As soon as Kibo’s car parked people came back and decided to sit on the veranda of one of the members called Miata James because they did not want to mis the meeting. One man who was mobilized by people who had attended the first stoves meeting said that she wanted to meet Harriet because they had told him about Harriet’s inspiring lesson. Harriet asked the participants to identify the challenges women go through as they cook food for the family. Participants said that women do 90% of the domestic work while men just command and demand for food. They said that some times women come back from the garden with food and water,with children either at the back or in the womb as men just watch. One woman ( Babirye) said that some times even when men find firewood in the forests they will never pick them up but when they get home they only demand for the food.One woman added that most of them don’t own forests where they get firewood on daily basis and at times they are forced to steal from their neighbours who at times catch them stealing and are charged money and their husbands leave them to pay the charges. At the end of the meeting all the men committed to help their wives with some domestic work because they have realized that they are their partners therefore, they need to help by their Counter parts.
