Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village to follow up on the progress of the stove building and maintenance of other facilities at the lower section of the village. When she arrived there, she was welcomed by some members who then made a few updates concerning the stove building process. Some members who didn’t have kitchens by then managed to get stoves which were built by the first old members. Suzan together with the members went and visited a few homes and found that new stoves had been built in new kitchens, and even other facilities were properly constructed such as the firewood storages,dish racks, latrines, shower areas and hand washing jerrycans. This was so impressive to see and Suzan thanked them for the good work done and encouraged them to continue with the same spirit of working together as a team. She also encouraged them to see that they always maintained all their facilities for a healthy living. Due to the rains which were threatening to rain, Suzan managed to check on only six homes that day and requested the members to Carry on with the activities .
