Healthy and Safe Kitchens
Harriet made a surprise visit with to Nawandyo A. This trip was intended to monitor the progress of smearing of the home facilities and stove usage.
This was because there were some people who were still cooking on three stones along side the three stones.
Harriet visited those homes and found most of those members when they had adjusted that there were now cooking on their stoves on daily basis and this was evidenced by the absence of three stones in the kitchens and finding some stoves cooking food.
She also came a cross one member cooking on her stove but smoke was still in the kitchen. The participants (kwagala Maureen) told her that she loves cooking on her stove because it cooks first, saves fire wood but the challenge was it still contained smoke in the kitchen.
Harriet tried to look at the vent to see whether it was blocked but there was nothing in it and she realized that the reason why smoke reminded inside is because the group failed to target wind direction as they built a stove.The owner was made at the group thinking that they built for her a poor quality stove.
Harriet reconciled the group and Maureen the complainant by explaining the cause of the problem. The group agreed to build for her a different stove in less than two weeks time so that she can equally benefit from the group.
Also as far as smearing is concerned most people have embraced smearing of their facilities and Harriet encouraged them to continue smearing and maintain their facilities.
Next Visit: 2019-09-27 - Purpose: Follow up some homes which are still lagging behind.
