Harriet went to Ndalike village to teach participants how to practically remove banana from the previously built stoves.
She reached in the village and found the participants already gathered at the meeting meeting place waiting for her.
She was welcomed by the Chairperson LC1 Anthony who thanked God for the journey mercies that He has always granted to kibo staff when ever they go in their village.
Harriet asked the participants to bring a shovel,and a knife that will be used to remove banana stems from the previously built stoves. She also asked the participants to walk with to the homes( Anthony and Fulumera Nangobi) where the demonstrations were to be carried out. She also asked the participants to pay attention and ask questions where they did not understand because kibo wants them to master a skill of building stoves from the beginning to the end.
They begun with Anthony’s stove , removed all the banana stems, removed the dirt which was stuck inside to allow easy flow of air for the stove to be effective .
They later came back to Nangobi’s stove but the challenge was after building for her a stove she never used to turn the saucepans which were built in the stove. when Harriet tried to remove the saucepans so that she can remove the banana stems , they were stuck there.
She re - explained to the participants why it’s important to always turn the saucepans that are built in the stove. She sprinkled water in the edges of the stove and saucepans to make the dirt soft to remove the saucepans.
She carefully removed the banana stems avoiding breaking the stove since the dirt was soft.
She removed the dirt which was stuck inside as she explained to the participants. After she shaped the stove. She later asked the participants to smear their stoves in order for them to last longer and look neat.
At the end banana stems were successfully removed from two stoves.
The participants apologized before kibo for the mistakes they made. Kibo staff encouraged the group to always follow up with each to help one another fix any problem if it’s discovered earlier.
The community thanked kibo for patiently teaching them and promised to participate until they master a skill of building stoves.
