Harriet, Jeska and Tape went to teach the community how to practically build stoves. Unfortunately they reached in the village when it had just stopped raining and people were still in doors. The Kibo staff waited for about 30 minutes then some members turned for the meeting. The community has already cut two sacks of grass which is a requirement for them to get the first demonstration stove. Kibo staff asked the group to walk with them and collect termite dirt, collect banana stems as well as water. Kibo staff mixed the termite dirt and grass at the ratio of 2:1 , cut banana stems as they explained to the participants. They later started to stamp the dirt and asked the community also to join. They encouraged them to participate because the goal is to empower them with a skill of building stoves . This was done accompanied by songs of unity and success. Kibo staff built a demonstration stove at the home of the participant( Farida Tamulenda).The was done as Kibo staff explained the whole process as the community watch. Immediately as the stove building was done it started raining heavily so the meeting to discuss the way forward as well as identifying the next participants to get a stove was not possible since members had to go back to their homes to remove the crops from outside that they had left to dry and also to take shelter. 

Next Visit: 2018-09-03 - Purpose: Teach the community how to build stoves.
