Harriet, Jeska and Tape found when the participants were stamping the dirt as they were waiting for them. They divided them into groups ,each had two men who were leading it. The men led the groups to build stoves. This time they tried at 80% ,the challenge is that one stove was raised very high which may lead to much firewood consumption. This was because the person who measured the banana stems had long figures which he used to measure banana stems therefor the banana stems he measured were also long. With the stove program we don't use tape measures neither sticks for measurement because tape measures requires money while the sticks when they get dry some one may forget and use them as firewood. Also we try to empower the community to use locally available materials easily accessible in their community. Harriet told them that they will be coming back in their community once before Kibo breaks for Christmas. She encouraged them to start discussing about it so that when Kibo goes for Christmas they can continue building stoves on their own. One old woman Naigaga Tapenesi was very happy for the group having decided to build for her a stove.
