Jessica went to the village to follow up on stove usage, smearing and construction of firewood raised storages in the kitchens. When she got there, she went to the meeting place and found some members gathered outside the tree nearby.
They warmly welcomed her and without wasting much time Jessica requested the members to walk her around the village so that she checks on different facilities. They agreed and together began walking while visiting home to home.
Jessica found the almost all the members were now cook on their stoves without complaining and some facilities were well maintained such as the shower areas,latrines, dish racks and rubbish pits. Most of the kitchens had also the firewood storages inside the kitchens while a few homes needed to improve on their facilities.
Jessica thanked them for the good work done and encouraged the members with good stoves to always assist their fellow members in repairing them so that they would also enjoy the benefits.
The members thanked Jessica for the advice given and promised to always continue working together as a team in all the program activities for an effective development.
