Harriet found a few participants waiting at the meeting place. She asked the few participants who had arrived at the meeting place to go and collect more people to come for the lessons. They later own all gathered and Harriet asked them to walk with her to the homes where two demonstration stoves were previously built. She divided them into two groups and asked each group to watch and learn at a time to avoid contesting one kitchen which may not give them enough room to watch and ask questions where they did not understand. She successfully removed banana stems from the two previously built stoves as she explained the whole process to the participants. At the end she asked the participants also to ask questions in order to assess whether they have been following the process or their have missed some steps. One participant “Najemba Amina” asked that what will happen in case they left the banana stems to stay for more than two weeks. Harriet thanked her for having asked such a question and told her that if the banana stems stayed longer they will rote in the stoves thus becoming hard to take out which ( blocking the different holes on the stove which was intended for different purposes). Harriet encouraged them to always be eager to learn “through active participation “the whole process of building stoves because they are expected to build stoves on their own.
