Jeska went to the village to guide the participants as they build stoves on their own and to follow up on the progress of the healthy and safe kitchen program. When she arrived there, she went to one of the group secretary’s home who welcomed her and then they walked to a home where other members had gathered.
One of the members who didn’t have a kitchen by then was going to receive a stove now that she had constructed a kitchen. The group members welcomed Jeska and together they began stamping the dirt which was already mixed with grass. When the dirt got soft enough, it was taken inside the kitchen and the members began building the stove as Jessica guided them.
She also kept on correcting them especially the measurements between the saucepans and the banana stems which they had not mastered very well. Later the stove was finally built and Jeska thanked everyone for participating.
She then walked around the village and visited some homes which had poor facilities, it was observed that the members were busy roofing and constructing their kitchens which were destroyed by the rains. She encouraged the participants to continue repairing their facilities so that they live a healthy life and the meeting came to an end.
