Healthy and Safe Kitchens
Tape, Suzan, Jessica, Carisa and Marine went to the lower side of the village to practically teach the participants how to build the fuel efficient stoves while they explained the whole process.
When they arrived, they found the members gathered at a home with the materials for building the stove already assembled. The Kibo staffs were warmly welcomed to the village with songs of joy and together they sat and briefly discussed about the activities that would take place that day. Kibo staffs began the measurements of the dirt and grass, mixing two basins of dirt with one basin of grass at ago until to made 10basins of dirt and 5basins of grass which was later mixed and spread.
Together they stamped the dirt which was mixed with water until it got ready for building the fuel efficient stove.
Some of the members who had already got stoves, participated in cutting and measuring the banana stems with guidance from the Kibo staff. This was important because participation enabled them to learn and master the skills easily since practice makes perfect with time.
The dirt was taken inside the kitchen and Kibo staffs began building the stove step by step while explaining each step to the members. They were also encouraged to keep asking questions whenever they didn’t understand so that they would easily master the skills of building the stoves without being left behind. Finally the stove was built which pleased everyone. Kibo staffs thanked all members for participating in the building process and encouraged them to always maintain the same spirit of working together as a community for an effective development. The meeting came to an end after choosing the next person that would receive a fuel efficient stove in the coming meeting.
Next Visit: 2019-05-24 - Purpose: To practically teach the participants how to remove the banana stems from the energy saving stoves.
