Jessica went to the lower section of the village to practically teach the community members how to build the fuel efficient stove. When she got there, she met a few members at the home where the stove was going to be built and they happily welcomed her there.
Together they picked up the basins,hoes,baskets and went to a nearby bush and began digging out the dirt from the anthill while carrying it back outside the kitchen until it made eight basins because they were going to build a smaller stove in a small kitchen. After and Under the guidance of Kibo staff, the members began measuring the dirt while mixing it up with four basins of grass. It was then spread out and Jessica began sprinkling some water all over it until it was ready for stamping.
To make the work easier and faster, Jessica encouraged all the members to join in stamping the dirt so that it would get ready faster. The members stamped the dirt while singing and dancing until it got ready. It was then carried into the kitchen and Jessica began taking measurements at a right wind direction while the members were watching critically.
Two older members from the upper section of the village who received the stove and had learnt some skills went and joined Jessica in building the stove while the new members watched and asked questions during the whole process. Asking questions helped the members understand and try to master the skills without being left out.
Finally one stove was successfully built that day and the members got so excited about it.
The next person to receive the stove was selected that same day by the fellow members and Jessica requested them to continue cutting grass for the next stove building. She thanked everyone for participating in the building process and she left the village.
