Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went to Naibowa village to follow up on the stove building progress and the maintenance of the program facilities. She reached in the village and found when the participants had already gathered at the meeting place busy chopping grass. The group had already identified the participants to get a stove for that day and they agreed to chop grass at the venue. The chairperson of the Healthy and safe kitchen program Ms. Nabirye Juliet welcomed Harriet to her village and told her that they have already a greed on the member to build for a stove that day and that was Waiswa Moses. The Participants had already collected water, banana stems at the site where the stove was going to be build.The participants collected the termite dirt from the anti hill,they mixed it with grass at a ratio of 1:2 .Later the participants and kibo staff joined hands and stamped the dirt. The unique part about this village the women are in charge of building stoves while the men are responsible for molding stoves. This was a sign of active participation, commitment , love and respect among one another. Kibo staff guided them and they successfully built a stove for Waiswa. After a meeting was held where Harriet thanked them for their hard and teamwork. She also encouraged them to keep on working together,to change responsibilities so that they can all learn. She asked women also to try to mold stoves as well as men also to participate in stamping the dirt because practice makes perfect. Kibo staff also walked through some few homes to check on program facilities and she was encouraged to see most people with dry stoves cooking on them and some homes being smeared. She also encouraged those who were lagging behind to do so.
