Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Harriet,Jeska and Marius( this guy build stoves for schools) went to Ndalike village to guide participants as they build stoves on their own. Also Marius wanted to see how the stove is built and how it works so that he can compare kibo stoves with what he builds for schools or to advise where necessary. They reached in the village and found when the participants had already gathered all the materials to be used for building stoves. The participants told Harriet that they would have stamped the dirt before Kibo gets into their village but since they wanted Marius to watch the whole process of stove building from the beginning to the end they had to wait. Harriet first took around Marius to sample or see how the fuel efficient stoves work whereby they visited two homes where they found stoves that were cooking food.The women were very excited about the stoves and they said that they cooked very first , vented out smoke and used less firewood compared to the traditional three stone fire. Later own they come back to the meeting place where the stove was to be built. The participants measured termite dirt and grass at a ratio of 2:1, mixed it, sprinkled water on it and stamped until it got ready. They did this as they sang songs of success and teamwork. The participants measured the banana stems where by one of the participants Philp took the lead. After measuring banana stems, Harriet asked the participants to demonstrate from outside or arrange how the banana stems should be fixed. The participants failed this because they only demonstrated with out showing where the banana stem that will move fire from the big pot to the small pot and this would affect its effectiveness. Kibo staff corrected their mistakes and told them how creating a hole between the two cooking pots was very important. Then participants moved the dirt into the kitchen, built a stove as kibo staff guided them. When the stove was complete the participants were very great full to kibo for teaching them, promised to keep on practicing until they master a skill. They also asked kibo to always follow up with them, guide them until they learn. The chairperson of these Group Sarah Baseke said that as a group they want to work and ensure that by the end of April they are able to perfectly build stoves on their own.
