Tape and Jeska went to Ituba Namalowe to build the first demonstration stove in the lower section of the village. They found when the participants had already gathered at the meeting place. They were waiting for them as they chopped grass that will be used to build stove. Jeska and Tape asked the participants to identify a member who would get the first demonstration stove.By consensus the participants agreed a demonstration stove to be built for Alice.the participants Chose her that she always the first one at the meeting place and also was the first one to smear her kitchen in the entire group. Kibo staff asked the participants to walk with them search for the termite dirt,collected the dirt,others brought banana stems to be used to build stoves. Kibo staff taught the participants how to mix the chopped grass and the dirt at a ratio of two basins of dirt to one basin of grass. In all they used 12 basins of dirt and six basins of grass. They mixed it , sprinkled water in it asked the participants to join them to stamp it until it was ready. After Jeska with some other participants moved the dirt into the kitchen as Tape practically taught them how to measure banana stems. Kibo staff later built a demonstration stove as they explained the whole process to the participants.They also asked the participants to ask questions where they did not understand because they want them to master a skill so that they can build stoves on their own. When the stove was complete participants were very and thanked kibo for considering them’ giving them an opportunity to learn how to build stoves. They promised to continue working with them as a team until they learn how to build stoves on their own. Jeska and Tape encouraged them to always move the saucepans that they used when they were building stoves so that they don’t get stuck as mud of the stove dries. They told them not to take them out of the stove until they go back to the village to teach them how to remove banana stems from the build stoves and how to shape the stove and that’s when they will remove the saucepans too.
