Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went to Sinde to follow up on some homes that were still cooking on open flames alongside the three stone fire. She was welcomed by one member of the Healthy and Safe kitchen program in Sinde ( Samuel). She asked him to walk with her to the three homes that were previously found cooking on the three stones and had promised to change. It was a surprise visit to them because they did not know when kibo was going to follow up with them. It was interesting to see that all the people who were cooking on the three stone fire alongside the fuel efficient stoves had stopped cooking on them except cooking on the fuel efficient stove only. They also testified that since they started cooking on their fuel efficient stoves , they now use less fire wood compared to the traditional three stones,there is less smoke in the kitchen, cook food fast since it cooks two things at ago as well as improved hygiene in the kitchen because the less firewood cooked the less ash is produced. She also reached some people who did not have kitchens and had started building them. They confessed that having seen those with stoves their lives had improved they were also attracted to build kitchens to get stoves since the program participants are willing to build for them stoves if they build kitchens. Harriet commented them for their good and encouraged them to maintain the spirit of hard working and teamwork.
