Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found the participants waiting for her at the meeting place. They were busy preparing materials for building stoves. One seeing Harriet arriving in their village they became very excited, dropped down every thing that they were doing and welcomed her with songs of joy as they hugged her as they danced together. The chairperson of the group Naigaga Farida thanked the members for their commitment towards Kibo program and asked them to maintain the team spirit. Harriet asked the group to divide them selves into two groups and Harriet guided each group to build a stove. The challenge was some people were very stubborn as they never wanted others in the group to guide them where they made mistakes. Harriet told them that they need to respect and listen to one another so that they can learn from each other in order to achieve development. This is because for the program to run smoothly they need to every one to specify in a particular process of building stoves. For example measuring the banana stems,laying the foundation, stamping the dirt, removing the banana stems and creating a vent for smoke. The group was able to build two stoves with the guidance of Harriet. The group thanked Kibo for empowering them with a skill as well as being patient with them. They also promised to work together as well as respect each other. This was very interesting as see two wives who were ever conflicting reconciled and hugged each other.
