Jeska went to the village to guide the members how to build the stoves on their own. When she arrived there, she found the members at the lower section of the village already stamping the dirt.
They happily welcomed her to the village and she joined them in stamping the dirt while they danced and sang together until it got soft and ready for building. Some of the new members at the lower section had not yet mastered the skills very well and Jeska went ahead showing and guiding them in some steps.
It was very important for everyone to know at least how to build the stoves because it would enable them build stoves on their own even if the program phased out from the village. Jeska showed them how the banana stems were properly leveled and cut because without doing it right, it would mess up the whole stove at the end.
She encouraged them to watch at each step carefully so that next time they would be able to build the stoves perfectly. In the end, a fuel efficient stove was built but mostly when the members participated.
Jeska encouraged them to also keep practicing on their own whenever they found free time together. The members thanked Jeska for the visit and lessons taught that day and the meeting came to an end.
