Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Tape found when the participants were busy mixing the dirt for building stoves. She first walked with them and checked on the four stoves that the community tried to build on their own. Fortunately all the stoves were pretty good except one stove where they forgot to expand the whole for firewood to accommodate firewood and leave some space for roasting maize . Tape corrected the mistakes as she explained to the community why it was necessary. She also inspected on the few stoves that were earlier built and were all good and being used on daily basis except one woman who complained that her vent was not letting out smoke from the kitchen. Tape checked the stove and found out that the vent was blocked with a stone that could not let smoke out thus kept the smoke inside the kitchen. She removed the stone and the stove immediately started venting out smoke. She told the owner to always make sure that the vent is open for easy smoke passage. They later came back to the meeting and guided the community as they built one stove on their own and it was perfectly done. The group promised to ensure that every a one gets a stove since they had mastered a skill .They also thanked Kibo for empowering them with a skill and being patient with them.
