Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Jessica, Suzan and Tape went to the village to teach and guide the community members how to build the fuel efficient stoves on their own. When they arrived there, they got the members already gathered at the meeting place with some of their committee leaders. They were warmly welcomed to the village,and after exchanging greetings, the leaders divided the group into two groups mixing up the old and the new members because many of the members had just joined the program and needed to learn faster from their fellow members. The two groups which were led by Kibo staffs, went to separate homes and began preparing the materials for building the stoves such as the water which was already in the big drums, basins, banana stems,the grass,sharp pangas,hoes,spades and the dirt which was picked from the anthill. The new members stood aside and watched critically at the whole process as the old members began measuring and mixing up the dirt and grass as well as cutting the banana stems. This was important because the new members needed to learn the skills faster since most of the old members had learnt and were almost winding up with the whole building process. The two groups stamped the dirt together while singing on top of their voices until the dirt got too ready for building. It was then taken inside the kitchens and Kibo staff guided the members as they began building the stoves. Step by step they built the stoves while explaining to the new members which was so encouraging. At the end, two fuel efficient stoves were built on that day and the members were so grateful for lessons taught. Kibo staff thanked all the members for participating in the program activities and encouraged them to continue with the same spirit of working together as a team for it would help them develop effectively within their community. The meeting finally came to an end wishing each other a happy stay.
