Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went to Naibowa village to follow up on stove building/ guide participants as they build stoves. She reached in the village and found the participants waiting at the meeting place. The participants had planned to divide them selves into two groups whereby some people remove banana stems from the previously built stoves while others practically build a stove on their own as kibo staff guides them. Kibo staff begun with guiding participants as they remove banana stems from the previously built stoves. Women took the lead as kibo staff guided them and it was successfully done. Kibo staff encouraged the women to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect. They later moved to a home where the participants were to build a stove on their own.The participants had already mixed,stamped the dirt and had all the building materials in place. The women took the lead in building a stove on their own as kibo staff guided them. Namwase Sylivia took the lead of spearheading this and the women tried at least at 90% the only challenging part of it was how to put the vent on the stove. Kibo staff explained to them to always be mindful of the wind direction when ever they are putting a vent on the stove to avoid wind blowing back smoke into the kitchen. The community thanked kibo staff for patiently teaching them despite the many mistakes they have always done. Kibo staff thanked them for their commitment ,encouraged them to keep on practicing because practice makes perfect.
