Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet,Jeska , Tape and Suzan found participants waiting at the meeting place in the lower Buluvu section. The participants who were already at the meeting place had come with grass waiting for Kibo staff to demonstrate to them how to cut grass. Later other members also turned up for the meeting and who ever was coming to meeting came with heap of grass. This was very encouraging to see that every one in the group actively involved in the program. Harriet thanked all the members for showing interest in the program and being interested to participate at all levels. Kibo staff checked the grass the members had gathered and sorted it out whereby those ones who brought the wrong was removed and put away. They also asked the participants whether the grass can easily be found in their village. Kibo staff demonstrated to the group how to chop grass and they later asked everyone in the group to participate in the process. This was intended to promote active participation to ensure that every one masters the skill of chopping grass.kibo staff gave them an assignment to cut three sacks of grass before the first demonstration stove is built. The group asked Kibo to give them one week that is by next week on Wednesday 20/ Feb 2019 they will be ready with three sacks of chopped grass. They also said that they are going to remain behind after Kibo’s meeting to discuss when they will be meeting to chop grass together as a group. Kibo staff guided the group to identify the first participant to get a demonstration stove. At this time every one wanted to get the first stove. Harriet reminded them Kibo’s intentions is to ensure that every one in the group gets a stove and a skill of building stoves. She also asked them to show a heart of giving other than always wanting to receive.The group later agreed on Farida Kawanguzi to be the first one to get a demonstration stove because she has been committed to the program and always mobilized them for the meetings.
