Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Tape went to Naibowa village to follow up on stove building progress, smearing of the home facilities and firewood storages. This time she wanted to concentrate in the upper section and see how their progressing. Naibowa village is at a point of building stoves on their own as Kibo inspects what they have done and corrects their mistakes where necessary. She reached in the village and was welcomed by the Vice chair person LC1 pastor Wilber who is at the same time an active participants in the healthy and safe kitchen program. Later own the chairperson of the healthy and safe kitchen program ( Nabirye Juliet ) also joined. Tape asked them how far they have gone with the program and they told her they have been busy building stoves on their own in a way that two day back they built two stoves on their.Tape asked the team to walk with her to those homes and she looks at the stoves. She inspected the stoves and they were perfectly done. Juliet told her that these two stoves were entirely built by the women meaning that they have also mastered the skill of building stoves. They also told Tape that they are working so hard to meet the deadline that they set them selves of end of March. This was so encouraging and Tape asked them to continue building stoves on their own since they have now mastered the skill. She also told them that once they finish all the members they should extend the skill to the neighboring communities which can help them to earn a living. Tape also walked through some other homes to check on smearing of the home facilities and most people had their facilities smeared except those who had constructed their facilities with bricks who told her that they were planning to plaster their facilities instead of smearing them. Tape encouraged them to do so in order for their homes also to look neat and last longer. As far as firewood storage was concerned most people who did not have them before had started putting them in place. Tape encouraged them to do it so first before the rainy seasons begins . Because if rain begins before they stock firewood they will struggle looking for them. One participants called Nagaiga told her that the stove enables her to cook food first since she is able to cook two things at a go thus time saving. She also said that her neighbor whose stove had not yet dried also wanted to start using her stove because she admires Naigaga. Tape told her to encourage her neighbor to be patient and wait for stove to dry to avoid it from cracking if she uses it before it dries.
