Harriet went to Naibowa to meet the Chairperson LC1 so that she can introduce the Healthy and Safe kitchen program to him in order to mobilize the community for the first meeting. It was also intended to discuss the most convenient day and venue for the community to meet. Harriet did not find the Chairperson of the village but Met the secretary for the women’s affairs who is a member of the LC1 committee. She briefly introduced the Healthy and Safe kitchen to her and told her that the program is intended to teach the community how to build fuel efficient stoves which will use less firewood, vent out smoke , cook two things at a go as well limit cases of fire accidents. The chairperson for women’s affairs told Harriet that most women in this area have a challenges of lack of firewood since most people don’t own forests where to fetch firewood on daily that has forced some women to buy firewood for cooking which is expensive while others have ended up stealing that has led them to be charged a lot of money in the courts of law. She however asked that what and how much will the materials used for building stoves will cost. Harriet told her that the stove is build out of the locally available materials which can easily be found in their community. She added that Kibo will teach the community practically the materials for building stoves. She also asked Harriet to go back and teach the community on Wednesday 13/09/2018. She promised to mobilize the community to attend
