Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan, Tape and Jessica went to the village with the purpose of building demonstration stoves. On arriving there, they found some members gathered at one of their member’s homes who happily welcomed them with songs of joy while leading them under a tree where a brief meeting took place. Kibo staff thanked the community for welcoming them and showing interest in the healthy and safe kitchen lessons. They went ahead and explained to the members their intentions that day and how the activity was to be carried out. The community was divided into two groups and Suzan explained why it was important, saying that each member would get a chance to learn the steps easily without squeezing one another in the kitchen and that it would create space for each person to participate in the building the energy saving stoves. Each group which was led by members from Kibo staff went to the selected homes where the stoves were to be built and began building the demonstration stoves while the members were watching. This was important because the community needed to be empowered with the skills of building the fuel efficient stoves which will improve on their healthy lives. The community members also involved themselves by participating in certain steps of the building process which was encouraged by the Kibo staff, this was important because it would enable them to master the skills faster. Some members also kept on asking questions throughout the building process which showed that they had much interest in learning. Two demonstration stoves were successfully built that day ,one in each home. Kibo staff thanked all members for taking part in the building process and encouraged them to keep on practicing for a better performance. The meeting came to an end with a prayer from Jessica after the community together with Kibo staff agreed on the date that the next meeting would take place.
