Notes
Harriet,Suzan and Jessica went to the village to build demonstration stoves and also to encourage the community members to participate in the building process so that they would be able to master the skills easily. When they arrived at the village, they found the members already gathered at the meeting place waiting patiently. The community members welcomed Kibo staff to their village,and after having a few discussions together, they separated into two groups with their leaders and went to the members homes where the demonstration process was going to be carried out. Most of the building materials were put in place at each home such as the water, the hoes,spades,panga and the dirt which was gathered at the compound near the kitchen. Kibo staff humbly requested all the members to try and participate in each step of the demonstration process because it would enable them learn easily and faster. Together they mixed and stamped the dirt while they danced and sung throughout until it got soft and ready for building. It was then carried inside the kitchen where every member got a chance to participate in building the stove. Kibo staff kept on explaining every step to the members since many had not yet mastered all the skills of building an energy saving stove. Finally,two stoves were successfully built that day in two different homes. The members were so greatful and promised to continue participating in all the Healthy and Safe kitchen lessons for a better healthy living. Harriet thanked all the members for involving themselves in the building process and encouraged them to continue practicing whenever they found free time. She also requested the members to always smear their home facilities so that they would look more neater. The meeting then came to end after agreeing on the date that the next meeting would take place.
