Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Jeska and Tape went to Kigalama village to follow up on stove usage and construction of firewood risen stands and this time . They planned to concentrate on the lower section o the village because during the previous visit kibo staff concentrated in the center of the village. This time they wanted to see how the lower section of the village is doing as far as the healthy and safe kitchen program. This was a surprise visit whereby they reached in the village and started walking home to home while inspecting the healthy and safe kitchens facilities. Interestingly most people were cooking on their stoves on daily basis however some stoves had cracked due to lack of smearing. Kibo staff encouraged the participants to smear their facilities especially stoves to stop them from cracking and enable them to last longer. Also they found some kitchens leaking due to heavy windy rains which washed a way grass that they had used to roof. Kibo staff encouraged the participants to roof their kitchens to stop rain from spoiling their stoves. The participants also acknowledged that the stoves have helped them to cook food first, use less firewood, eliminate smoke from the kitchen which has attracted the husbands to heap their wives cook food thus increased marriage relationship.
