Harriet did not find any one at the meeting place that is at the home of Masaba where the demonstration of removing banana stems from the built stove was to be carried out. But as soon as she reached other members turned up for the meeting. She skied them to try to remove banana stems as she guides them. All the women feared to try but the men were ready.Harriet guided them to remove banana stems and they tried though not perfect but at least at 85%. Harriet urged the women to watch the men as they do so that they will also take out banana stems for Etiang after learning from these men. During the meeting there was an alarm in the village that one child 8 years went to fetch water in the morning and did not come back home. The community had to quit the meeting and went to search for the missing child. The community asked Harriet to leave because it was threatening to rain and the road is very bad which may lead the car to stick in the mud. On the way back to Jinja the community told Harriet through a phone call that the child was discovered he had lost direction. 

Next Visit: 2018-09-26 - Purpose: Guide the community as they build stoves on their own.
