Kibo staff divided the participants into two groups where by one group went to Anthony’s home while another one went to Nangobi’s home. Harriet joined the group that went to Anthony’s home while another group at Nangobi’s home was joined by Tape.
Each group was guided / joined by kibo staff whereby they collected water, banana stems,termite dirt from the anti hill together. Kibo staff demonstrated to them how to mix grass and termite dirt as the participants were watching. After kibo staff sprinkled water in the mixture and asked the participants in each group to join in stamping grass . It was very interesting to see every one in the group participant in gin stamping the dirt. And this was done as participants sang songs of success and remaining each to participate in the program from the beginning to the end .
