Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan and Jessica went back to Naisamula village to follow upon the smearing of the buildings and the construction of the high risen firewood firewood storages. They arrived in time and found some community group leaders at the meeting place . Among them was the program chairperson who welcomed Suzan and Jessica to the village, and without wasting much time, they agreed to form two groups which were led by Kibo staff. Group A went to the lower side of the village while B went to the upper side and began visiting home to home while monitoring the program facilities. During the whole process, some houses were well smeared plus their stoves while others needed to be smeared once again because the members said that the rains had previously washed off the dirt. The members also complained saying that the termites kept on eating the poles of the firewood storages and they were planning to build new ones preferably using ropes which would just hung up. Suzan and Jessica kept on encouraging the members to work together as a team or family members in smearing their buildings and repairing their facilities such as the dish racks, kitchen roofs,latrines and shower areas because it would enable them live a healthy life free from diseases once again. However they reminded them to always follow the Covid-19 guidelines whenever they were planning to carry out any community activities because things were not yet back to normal. All the members were found cooking on their fuel efficient stoves although some of them needed to smear them because they had big cracks on them. Suzan also requested the group leaders to list down the number of vulnerable members who needed assistance in smearing their kitchens so that they would plan together and help them in the coming visit. They thanked Kibo staff for the visit and the new suggested ideas that day and the meeting finally came to an end wishing each other a happy stay.
