Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found some participants waiting for her at the meeting place. As soon as she reached other people turned up for the meeting. Harriet asked them how far have they gone with collecting grass that will be needed for building stoves. The group told her that Kamida one of the participants who earlier got a stove volunteered on Tuesday and led the group to search for grass. They added Kamida group had planned to lead the group to start cutting grass but the challenge was there not sure where she will do it right. Harriet demonstrated to the group on how to cut grass and asked every one to participate. It was nice to see some men like the chairperson LC1 and the chairperson of funerals association committing themselves to participate in the program. She asked the meeting to focus on identifying the leaders who will coordinate the Healthy and Safe kitchen program for it to be effective in their village. Some people feared to take on responsibility but two ladies that is Kamida and Kagoya Mawazi committed themselves to coordinate the program. They said that for them they already have stoves but they will help other people in the village also to get stoves provided they also commit themselves to work together. The group was very happy and thanked these two ladies who committed themselves and promised to work hand in hand with them. Also Mawazi( the Chairperson of the funeral association )said that he will join the two ladies to coordinate the program. Harriet also reminded them that building stoves in hard work that requires teamwork and commitment. She also told them the main goal for the program is for the community to learn how to build stoves so that they can build stoves on their own and help the neighboring communities. She told them that they can even turn their skill into a source of income by building stoves in other neighboring communities for money. The group agreed to remain behind after the meeting and discuss the date they will gather to cut grass together at the same time and place. Harriet left them with an assignment to cut one sack of grass before the next meeting to prove that they are really interested and ready for the program implementation. 

Next Visit: 2019-01-28 - Purpose: Form policies that will govern the program as well chose the first participant to get the first stove.
