Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet made a surprise visit to Ikumbya village and this was intended to assess whether the participants cook on their stoves on daily basis or have kept their home facilities well smeared. She reached in the village when no one was expecting her and started walking home to home while inspecting the stoves. It was interesting to find when all the members were using their stoves on daily basis and this was evidenced by the absence of three stone fire in the kitchen, in some homes she found food cooking by itself while in other homes food was being attended on by children. One of the participants called Sulai Mugoya told Harriet that the stove helped him to eliminate cases of fire accidents because before he got a stove his child Babirye was burnt by water that was cooking on unstable traditional three stones. He added that basing on the amount of money he spent to treat his burnt child he was forced to participate and learn how to build stoves. He added that having got a stove, learnt how to build stoves , he decided to travel to his home village of origin ( Lambala in Kamuli district) and decided to teach them the benefits of stoves and how to build stoves which has also improved on their lives. Participants also told Harriet that the stoves help them to use less firewood to cook food, cook fast however most of the participants were lacking the fire risen stands in their kitchens to store firewood and Harriet taught them about it and they promised to build them too.
