Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet found the participants busy building stoves. They had so far built two stoves and they were now on the third stove for the day. They warmly welcomed her with songs and dancing showing how excited they were for the program.Harriet watched and guided them as they built the third stove. There after she walked with them to inspect the first two stoves that the community had just built on their own that very morning and they were fairly done. She corrected a few mistakes that were there like smoothening them so that they would look very neat. She also told them to be careful when they are removing banana stems to avoid spoiling those stoves. She also encouraged them to always look at the complete stoves to guide them as they remove banana stems. The community together with Harriet walked through the homes that had earlier got stoves checking on whether they have started cooking on them especially those ones which had dried up. She also wanted to find out whether the members have smeared their stoves and other home facilities. Some people had started smearing, though some were only concentrating on smearing the stove only and leaving the entire kitchen un smeared. Harriet encouraged them to smear the whole kitchen other than the stove only so that the kitchen would look neat and also to avoid jiggers that may come as a result of too much dust on the kitchen floors. She also encouraged some people whose kitchens had dried up and had not yet started cooking on them to start cooking on them. The community was so happy and thanked kibo for the continuous guidance and love despite the common mistakes they have always done.
