Harriet and Suzan went to Nabikenge village to carry out the first evaluation process after two and a half years of implementing the healthy and safe kitchens program. This was to find out if the program facilities were still in use and maintained such as the stove usage and smearing of the buildings.
When they got there, they went to the program chairperson’s home and met her sitting with some members outside her home. They happily welcomed Kibo staff to the village and then briefly sat down together exchanging greetings while reminding each other about the past events that took place during the program activities.
Later after, Harriet informed the members about the activity that day and why it was important. She then requested a few members to walk with each of the Kibo staff while leading them to the homes which participated in the program activities. The two groups went separate ways and began conducting the evaluation process.
During the process, Kibo staff visited more than ten homes and found that most members had managed to maintain their facilities like smearing all their buildings and stoves. But most of the stoves needed repair because they had got too old with broken ends although they still cooked on them.
Suzan and Harriet kept on thanking the members for the good teamwork spirit and maintaining some of the facilities, they encouraged them to keep smearing all their buildings and stoves so that they would last longer once again. Some kitchens were in a poor state with less grass at the roof and the members promised to repair them as soon as possible before the rains began.
At the end of the day, Kibo staff thanked the members for working together and promised to go back and finish up with the evaluation process since some homes were left out because the owners were absent that time.
