Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found a few participants at the meeting place. As soon as she arrived other participants also turned up for the meeting. The group told Harriet that they tried to build one stove on their own a day before and they wanted her to go and look at it, grade them or correct their mistakes in case of any. Harriet looked at the stove , it was fairly done the challenge was they put the banana for letting out smoke on the side of the big source pan instead of the small source pan. This would affect the effectiveness of the stove as it would prevent fire from moving from the big pot to the small pot as well as smoke getting out of the kitchen.Since this stove was still fresh it was very easy for Harriet to remold. Kibo staff together with the community also inspected the two stoves that the community had just removed banana stems. They had also tried but in one stove they did not remove the banana stem from the hole that brings in oxygen. She corrected the mistake by removing the banana stem and told the members that Incase the hole for oxygen is not created the owner of the stove will be forced to sit by food in the kitchen while cooking as she needs to keep on blowing fire in the stove unlike if the oxygen hole is present fire will light itself. She also urged participants that as they try to build stoves on their own to always look at the complete stoves that were built by kibo to avoid making mistakes again. The community thanked Kibo’s approach for patiently guiding them despite of the many mistakes they have always done.
