Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the lower section of the village to follow up on the smearing of the buildings, saving stoves and the construction of the high risen firewood storages. However, when she got there she found some group leaders on their way to the meeting place and when they warmly welcomed her to the village. After settling down together and discussing about the way forward to the activity that day, they agreed to visit a few homes at the lower section and check on some facilities which were still in a bad state. They mainly focused on the homes which had poor facilities such as the kitchens which needed to be roofed and smeared, cracked or broken stoves and the kitchens which lucked the firewood stands. During the whole process some stoves were found broken with big cracks all over them and the women reported that it was because of the rains which passed through their kitchen roofs which were leaking. And for that case, they were planning to first construct the kitchen roofs then later repair and smear their stoves. Suzan went ahead and demonstrated for some members how they would seal off the cracks with sand/dirt, once they finished constructing their kitchens. She also encouraged them to construct other facilities like the kitchen stands, dish racks and smear all their buildings whenever they found free time out of their gardens. She requested the old members who had fully mastered the skills of building the fuel efficient stoves to go ahead and teach other members how to repair their stoves so that they would also enjoy the benefits. The members thanked Kibo staff for the lessons and advice given to them and the meeting came to an end wishing one another a happy stay.
