Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to Kagulu B upper village to monitor the stove usage and the smearing of the buildings such as the bathrooms, pit latrines, main houses, kitchens and the fuel efficient stoves. When she got there she met some members gathered at the meeting place with their group chairperson Mukungu Joseph. She was warmly welcomed to the village and after settling down and exchanging greetings, Suzan went ahead and informed them about the activity that was going to take place that day and she requested only those willing and feeling healthy enough to participate in the activity. Some of the women were not able because they were fully pregnant while others looked sickly. Suzan together with the participants got up and began walking around the village visiting home to home while monitoring different facilities. About 31 homes were visited that day and almost all the members visited were found cooking on their fuel efficient stoves although some of their buildings were not well smeared and needed repair. Other members had not put up the firewood storages in their kitchens and the dish racks had worn out because of the termites which eat up the poles. Suzan thanked the members for maintaining their facilities and encouraged those who had not, to go ahead and improve on them especially smearing all their buildings and stoves. She also requested them to try and reconstruct new movable dish racks to avoid termites. The members thanked Suzan for the advice given and the meeting came to an end.
