Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found when the members had already gathered at the meeting place and were busy stamping the dirt for building stoves for the two identified members . The community chose these members to get stoves because they were too old and weak but they always walked with them and attended meeting. So the group decided to share with these two old women God’s love by helping them also to get stoves. The community divided them selves into two but there were gender sensitive whereby they made sure that all the groups had men and women , young and old participants to promote active participation. It was very interesting for the community to peace fully balance themselves in the two different groups with the guidance of their leaders. The two groups successfully built two stoves for Apia and Elungata( two old women) with little guidance from Harriet. The two women who got stoves were very happy and thanked the Kibo for teaching them about unit and cooperation as well as empowering them with the skill of building stoves. They also acknowledged the group for having considered them to get stoves despite being old and weak yet the stove requires hard work. Kibo staff also assigned the community with a task of starting to build stoves on their own as Kibo will be coming back to inspect them. She also encouraged those ones whose stoves had spent a month from the time of building to start cooking on them. The members were very excited to see that they are going to start cooking on their stoves which are going to change their lives. 

Next Visit: 2018-10-31 - Purpose: Follow up on the already built stoves by the community and correct the mistakes in case of any.
