Harriet went to Ndalike village to teach participants how to practically remove banana stems from the previously built stoves. She reached in the village and found the participants already gathered at the meeting place busy chopping grass that will be used to built more stoves as they waited for kibo staff.
The chairperson for the healthy and safe kitchens program Sarah Baseke welcomed kibo staff to their village and thanked every one for turning up for the meeting and their active participation in the healthy and safe kitchens program .
Kibo staff asked them to bring a shovel , a panga and a knife that they will use to remove banana stems as well as to pay kin attention. Kibo staff led the participants to the homes where the exercise was to be conducted. The team begun with rehema’s stove. Kibo staff removed banana stems,removed the dirt that was stuck inside to allow easy flow of air for the stove to effectively work. Later she shaped the stove where she increased the whole for firewood to provide enough space that will be used to put firewood and roast maize at the same time incase some one wanted to too. She also asked the owner to smear the complete stove to enable it to look neat and last longer.
Kibo staff then asked the participants to practice what they have learnt by removing removing banana stems from the second stove as she was watching. A team of three people( two women and one man) volunteered to participate.
They tried to remove the banana stems but forgot to remove banana stems between the two cooking pots and the vent. Kibo staff corrected their mistakes and encouraged them to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect.
Kibo staff asked them to get ready to start building stoves on their own because kibo targets to teach them a skill of building stoves so that they can build more stoves on their own, build for others to earn a living.
The participants thanked kibo for patiently teaching them and promised to keep on practicing until they master a skill of building stoves.
