Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet,Jeska, Tape and Suzan went to kiteigalwa to guide participants to form policies as well and build a demonstration stove. Unfortunately Kibo staff got in the village when there were two activities that were taking place. That is it was a school opening day where by some women had taken their children to school. Also there was a funeral in the village of one of the community members who had died. Because the community did not want to miss Kibo’s opportunity, they had divided them selves into there that some people to take their children to school , some go to the funeral while others stay and work with Kibo. Kibo staff found the few members that the community had assigned with the task of working with them but the number was to small yet the intended meeting was meant for the entire community to avoid leaving some people behind as well as get everyone’s contributions especially when it comes to forming policies. Kibo staff told the community programs goal is to empower the community with the skill of building stoves . They decided to ask the few members who were there to postpone the meeting to the Monday 11th Feb 2019 when everyone will be available. On the other hand since the community has been all responding to funeral problem if some people stayed behind to build stoves and sent a few to the funeral may bring division in the community the family that had lost the dear one may feel not cared for, loved if they don’t all go to the funeral. The community thanked Kibo for considering them for the challenges they facing that day and they were also encouraged to continue caring for each other. Kibo staff joined the family of the deceased ,comforted then , helped to fetch water and cook some food for the mourners. 

Next Visit: 2019-02-11 - Purpose: Guide the community to form policies that will govern the program.
