Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet and Jeska found the participants busy stamping the dirt for one of the two stoves the community had planned to build that day. They were working while singing and dancing showing how excited they were for the program. Kibo staff joined them and worked together to complete stamping the dirt for two demonstration stoves. Kibo staff built two stoves together with the community as they explained the whole process. The community leader Kamida said that on the previous day they tried to build stoves on their own and asked Kibo to go and look at them and advise them where necessary. Kibo staff looked at these stoves, they were poorly made and they had to remold them as they explained to them the mistakes. Kibo staff also thanked/ encouraged them for having taken an initiative to try to build stoves though they were not perfect. They encouraged them to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect. The community was so happy for Kibo’s approach towards the mistakes they made while trying to build stoves and they promised to keep on trying until they are perfect as far as building the stove building is concerned. They also promised to keep working as a team to ensure that every one in the group participate.
