Village Notes
Tape found when the participants had already gathered at the home of one of the members and were busy cutting grass. The group had already cut two sacks of grass which is the community task before they get the first demonstration stove. Since the community had cut the required grass, she asked them to choose among themselves a member who should get the first demonstration stove. The community by consensus chose kakaire with the reason that she is the one who brought a large heap of grass and she is always the first one at the meeting place. The community together with Kibo staff divided up whereby some people went to fetch water, others went to collect termite dirt while others went to bring banana stems Kibo staff mixed the dirt as she explained the whole process to the community. They later stamped the dirt together as she guided them. At the end she built one demonstration stove as she explained the whole process. She told the participants that Kibo’s goal is to empower them with a skill so that they learn and build stoves on their own.she also encouraged them to continue working together for the Healthy and Safe kitchen program program to be effective. The group promised to work together not to let the opportunity of stoves given to them down.
