Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet and Suzan went to sinde with a goal of monitoring the stoves that the community has started building on their own and also prepare the community to start doing on the own. They found when the community had just finished building one stove on their own. Kibo staff inspected the stove and it was really very good. The group told Kibo staff that because most of their kitchens have raised foundations outside,they decided to used long banana stems ( for the vent) that can go up to the width end of the foundation to avoid smoke remaining in their kitchens. Kibo staff looked at them and they were really good and interesting. Kibo staff thanked them for working together as a team,being creative and open to new ideas. They also told them to get ready and continue building stoves on their own because the Healthy and Safe kitchen program is going to slow down its frequent visits in their village since they had already acquired a skill of building.The group at first did not get the point and thought that Kibo was quitting working in the village. Harriet further explained to them that the goal of Kibo is to empower them with a skill that they can later use on their own to create sustainability of Kibo programs in their community.she added that though the program may not be frequent in their village she will be following up on them on phone, through other Kibo programs that will be active in their village. The group promised Kibo staff to stay working together to ensure that other members who had not got stoves also get. They said that by the end of may 2019 all the members in the group would have got stoves
