Harriet, Henry, Jeska, John, Jo, Jessy and Chad found a few people waiting at the meeting place. The first walked a round the village to see how the community is doing as far as sanitation and hygiene standards. Most people had maintained their sanitation and hygiene standards and found when most people have maintained their standards. They also came a cross an old woman who had just got a stove and her latrine was getting filled up. The good news was this old woman had hired some one who was digging a pit latrine for her. She said she doesn’t have children or grand children who would help her to do some domestic work but she believes when she starts cooking on the stoves her life will be simplified because she will be using less firewood, that will save her time to even rest. They later came back at Odongo’s House where a stove was to be built. The community had already gathered the materials required for building stoves. Kibo staff guided them to mix the dirt and grass at a ratio of one to two. Kibo staff, the community together with the visitors worked together to stamp the dirt and built a stove. This was done as the community danced and sang songs of success and saying how unified the community was through the influence of Kibo that they feel it was led by God. The community thanked Kibo for empowering them with a skill of building stoves stoves and also the visitors who had visited their village. They said that Kibo has blessed their village in so many ways and they decided to stay working together as a team.
