Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet went to Ndalike village to continue guiding participants as they build stoves on their own.During the previous meeting Tape left an assignment to the participants to try to build stoves on their own so that when kibo staff gets there will find it fresh and Incase it is not properly build she will correct their mistakes. It was very encouraging to Harriet when she found the participants busy building a stove on their own and it was almost done. The participants only forgot to turn the saucepans after building a stove this would make it hard to remove banana stems since the saucepans would get stuck. Harriet corrected their mistakes and turned the saucepans , she also encouraged the owner to keep on turning the saucepans to avoid them getting stuck in the stove as the dirt dries. After kibo staff asked the participants to remove banana stems from the two stoves that were previously built. The participants tried but they left the dirt stuck inside the holes and this would affect the flow of fire, air and smoke thus affect the effectiveness of the stove. Kibo staff corrected their mistakes and encouraged them to always look at the complete stoves when ever they are removing banana stems from the stoves. The complete stoves would guide them on how the complete stove should look like. Kibo staff also asked the participants to smear the complete stoves and the kitchens in order to look neat and last longer. After she also checked on some few first stoves that were built in this village and found some had started cooking. She found some people already cooking on their stoves and they said that they cook very well,use less firewood, vent out smoke thus comfortable to cook on. However some participants had not started cooking on their stoves though they had dried up. They said that they were waiting for kibo staff to tell them to start cooking on them. She told them to start cooking on their stoves to get rid of challenges caused by the traditional three stones fire. Participants thanked kibo for always guiding them and encouraging them, they also promised to keep on working together up to the end of the program.
