Harriet had planned to introduce the Healthy and Safe Kitchen to the community.This was intended to create awareness on the benefits of this program as well as assess their interest in the program. Harriet found some participants waiting at the meeting place. As soon as she reached other participants showed up for the meeting. The chairperson LC1 introduced Harriet and asked the community to listen to Harriet what she had come to teach them. Harriet first thanked the community for having turned up for the meeting and she also encouraged them to always respond to any teaching brought in their community if they are to benefit. She asked the group to identify the challenges they go through while cooking. This was intended to help men understand how much work the women do to support the family. Also this was intended to help men appreciate their wives on how much work their do thus help them to support their wives. The group said women do a lot of work right from cleaning the home,fetching water, taking care of the sick ,looking for food,fetching water as well as looking for fire wood and cook for the family. The group said some men only help to support With finances to support the family which it’s done at 50%. One woman called Matilda said that for her from the time she grew up her father never helped her mum and even her when she got married she never expected any help from the mother. She added that at times when women ask their husband to help them they complain and say that women look them down. One man called Okecho reminded there is need to love their wives because the Bible encourages them to treat them as partners not as slaves. Some men said that most of their wives do not take time to have a bath because they always pretend to be busy. The women reacted on this and said they also love to bath during day time but basing on several activities they do with in a day at times they lack time to bath during day time . They only bath at night after serving food to the family and every one is a sleep. Harriet asked them to identify the possible solutions toward this and they said that women need stoves so that they can set food on fire and are able to do other activities. Harriet told them that the reason she asked them she wanted them to understand the challenges they go through and work hard to overcome them. Therefore Kibo plans to teach them how to build fuel efficient stoves but it requires active participation for both men and women. The group was very excited and asked if Kibo can build some stoves for them the following day. Harriet told them that they will have to go through a series of theoretical lessons before they go for practicals.
