Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found the participants busy removing banana stems from the previous built stoves.They told her they wanted her to find them when they started working on the stoves before she gets to their village. She told them that her goal to go to the village is to watch them remove banana stems on their own as she guides them where they go wrong. Zahara and Namukwana asked to volunteered to lead the two groups because they felt that at least for them they have learnt but only wanted Kibo staff to watch them do it to ensure that they are perfect. Harriet told them that she will take one group at a time. She begun with Zahara’s group which perfectly removed the banana stems but failed to shape the hole for firewood and Harriet helped them do it. While Namukwana’s group also tried to remove banana stems but they forgot to remove the banana stem between the two cooking areas. Harriet corrected the mistake and told them that they should always ensure that all the five stems are removed for the stove to work. She added that Incase they leave the banana stem that takes fire from the big pot to the small pot it will affect the effectiveness of the stove. For example the small pot will not be able to cook and the smoke will remain in the kitchen. After Harriet walked around to see the progress of smearing, she found out some members have started smearing their kitchens and their stoves while other were still behind. She encouraged them to smear their home facilities for them to last long and to avoid jiggers that may come as a result of poor hygiene. Members promised to stay working together in building stoves as well as smearing their home facilities.
