Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found the participants already gathered at the home of one of the participant Mr. Oketcho Julius. The group was busy building the stove for him because he is one of the members who did not have a kitchen but his wife had been active in the Healthy and Safe kitchen program. Because the family had admired the Healthy and Safe life that those one with stoves were living which forced them to build a kitchen in order to get a stove. The group was very excited for the family seeing working together to build a kitchen in order to get a stove. Harriet joined them mainly guiding them to fix the banana stems required to create different holes in the stove because it the only area they could not do well. The stove was successfully built and the owner of the home thanked Kibo for having chosen their village for the Healthy and Safe kitchen program that has also influenced her husband to build for her a kitchen that she didn’t expect for so many years she had stayed in marriage. She added that through the Healthy and Safe program she has benefited more than one thing ( improved marriage relationship,the kitchen and the stove that will help her to cook food fast using less firewood as well reduce on smoke related diseases and burns). The group also thanked Kibo for love, unity and cooperation that it brought to their village that has opened their eyes to work together and support each other to achieve development. Harriet told them that it’s through their hardworking, unity and team work that they will achieve development as well as attract other development partners because they are always attracted by active and united groups. The chairperson of the group told Harriet that they are 58 members in the group and their target is the to ensure every one gets a stove. 30 stoves have so far been built in the village and most of the members remaining lacked kitchens but some have already started building them. Harriet also encouraged them to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect.
