Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan and Jessica went to Kagulu A to follow up on the stove usage and the maintenance of the other healthy and safe kitchens facilities such as the smearing of all the buildings and repair of the dish racks and kitchen roofs. When they got there, they met the committee chairperson sitting with some of the members at the meeting place. They happily welcomed them to the village and after exchanging greetings, they stood up as agreed together and began moving around the village visiting home to while monitoring different facilities. The group which was led by some of the committee members first went to the borehole and inspected its surroundings which were found well maintained. Then they began checking on the homes from the lower sides which had stoves, about 8 members had failed to maintain their stoves leaving them to crack all over because they took long to smear them and were cooking on the three stones open flames once again. Suzan and Jessica advised them and showed them how to seal off the cracks with sand and water then smear them after wards. This should be done at least twice in a month so that the stoves lasted longer and cooked more effectively. Some members had improved in their general sanitation and hygiene around their homes,whereby their facilities such as the dish racks, bathrooms,latrines, kitchens,rubbish pits were well maintained and smeared although not all the members managed to smear all their buildings but promised to do so once it stopped raining. The reason why other members stopped smearing buildings was because of the rains which were washing away the mud already smeared and promised to do so as soon as the rains stopped. Kibo staff requested the members to repair some of the spoilt facilities such as the dish racks and latrines which were filled up with the rain water for this would cause accidents especially for the children. The members thanked Kibo staff for the visit and advice given to them that day, and wished them a happy stay with their families and a safe journey back home.
