Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went to Naibowa village to guide participants as they build stoves on their own,follow up on smearing of the home facilities as well as stove usage. She reached in the village and found when there was a funeral in the neighboring communities where by most people had gone. However the participants had agreed to divide them selves so that some people would remain behind to work with kibo. The participants of group D had already finished to stamp the dirt and moved it in the kitchen.Kibo staff asked them to build a stove for Namwase Sarah as she guides them. The challenge was these participants could not make a good foundation for the stove instead they made Avery big one which would consume a lot of space and dirt thus tiresome. Kibo staff asked them to demolish it and she made a better foundation as they watched,she guided them how to measure banana stems which they perfectly did. They tried to build a stove but they they forgot to put a banana stem that will vent out smoke. HARRIET corrected their mistakes and told them that if they don’t put a vent smoke will remain in the kitchen thus affect the effectiveness of the stove. She also asked them to always look at the stoves that kibo built in their village for comparison and guidance. The group thanked kibo for guidance and being patient with them despite the many mistakes they have always made. HARRIET encouraged them to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect. She later walked around the village to follow up on smearing of the home facilities and stove usage. She found when some people with dry stoves cooking on them while other were waiting for them to dry before they started cooking on them. Some people had not yet smeared their stoves and other facilities which she encouraged them to do so in order for them to last longer and look neat.
