Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went in kiteigalwa village and found very few participants at the meeting place. Since the program had possed in this village it was not wise for Harriet to work with only the few people who had turned up for the meeting. She decided to walk home to home to mobilize the participants and tell them about her visit in the village ( resuming implementing the Healthy and Safe kitchen in their village) She found some people at their homes who told her that they were not told the reason why she had gone back to their village since those ones who missed the chance of getting stoves had lost hope. They also told her since the program is coming back in their village they are very excited and promised to mobilize each other to participate. Harriet also came across one member who had got a stove and did not care for it well and it ended up being spoiled that forced her to go back to cook on open flames. She said that she regrets for her mistake because she now admiring a few people who got were using stoves compared to her who is still cooking on open flames. She also said that if given a chance to participate she will make sure that she learns how to build stoves and how to take good care of the stove in order to sustain the program. Harriet told them and encouraged them to Mobilize each other for Healthy and Safe kitchen program implementation. The meeting was postponed to 16/ January 2019. 

Next Visit: 2019-01-16 - Purpose: Teach participants the goals and objectives of the program.
