Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village purposely to teach the community members how to remove the banana stems from the fuel efficient stoves which were built one week ago. When she arrived there, she went straight to the meeting place at the church and found the members already gathered. She was warmly welcomed and without wasting much time, the program committee chairperson Mr. kasaijja informed Suzan about the two stoves that they had tried building on their own which had now made one week and the banana stems needed to be taken out that day. Together they walked to the first home and Suzan requested the members to stand aside and watch as she taught them how to take out the banana stems because some of them who had just joined the group had no idea how it was carried out. Suzan also picked a knife and cut out the dirt which was stuck in the stove and shaped all the stove entrances neatly. There after, she requested some members to bring some cow dung in the basin and mix it with ash so that it would be used for smearing the fuel efficient stoves. This was important because it helped the not to form cracks and also to look much more neater. During the process, Suzan pointed out some other mistakes that they had made such as taking measurements between the kitchen walls and saucepans which were fixed in the stoves and after explained the rightful way it was supposed to be done. She requested the members to smear all their houses so that their homes look much more neater and healthy and this would improve on their general hygiene and sanitation in their community. The banana stems were successfully taken out from two stoves on that day, and the members thanked Kibo staff for the lessons that day wishing her a safe journey back home.
