Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village to follow up on the maintenance of the program facilities such as the construction and repair of the kitchen roofs, stove usage, firewood storages and smearing of the buildings. When she got there she went to the meeting place and got a few members outside the building with their group chairperson. She was warmly welcomed to the village and without wasting much time, they all agreed and began walking around the village while visiting some homes which still needed to improve on their facilities. As they moved house to house, Suzan observed that some stoves had just been smeared together with other buildings and most members were found cooking on their improved stoves. About three kitchens needed to be repaired especially from the top because they still had openings. It was also observed that some kitchens had poorly built firewood storages which would easily fall down and hurt someone. Suzan went ahead and explained the importance of building some facilities using stronger materials, she said they would last longer and save them time for other activities. She also encouraged each member especially the committee group leaders to always check and monitor the progress of some program activities even if kibo group was out. Suzan thanked all the members for engaging themselves in the program activities for it showed how much they wanted to live a good healthy life with their families. She encouraged them to work together as a team in the community and prepare for the first evaluation process which would take place very soon.
