Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Tape went to the village to follow up on the stove usage and maintenance of the other program facilities. When she arrived there, she was welcomed by some group members who were already at the meeting place with the group chairperson. They sat down together and first exchanged greetings then began discussing about the way for to the continuation of the program activities after elections. The chairperson reported that everything was back to normal and some members had gone ahead improving on their facilities like smearing their houses, constructing new firewood storages and kitchen roofs. He said all the members were always found cooking on their new improved stoves whenever the committee members followed up or visited each participant at their homes. Tape was so impressed to hear this and suggested they walk her around the village so that she would also check on the facilities. Together they got up and began visiting different homes while Tape kept observing the stoves and other facilities . Most homes at the lower section of the village were well smeared especially the kitchens and the stoves were well maintained. Tape thanked all the members for participating in the program activities and maintaining their facilities, she encouraged them to continue working together as a team and building more stoves for the new members who were interested. The members thanked tape for the advice given and tape left the village.
