Suzan went to the village to follow up on the facilities at the upper section and also introduce the program to the members since the village was big making some members unable to meet in one place.
When she arrived, she went to the meeting place at the lower section and found mr. Richard the chairperson who welcomed her and together they went to the upper section of the village and began walking home to home. Together as they walked, Suzan observed that most kitchens and other buildings were poorly roofed and smeared and the members found cooking on the traditional three stones open flames stoves.
Suzan kept on introducing the program to the members and requested them to first repair their facilities before receiving the new improved saving stoves. She also explained to them all the materials required for building the stoves which were all free of charge and available within their community such as dirt from an anthill, three types of grass, daily water, banana stems, hoes and shovels, basins and saucepans.
Once they accepted the healthy and safe kitchens program, they will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the new improved fuel efficient stove. By the time Suzan left the village, the members had agreed to the stove program and promised to work together with the members at the lower section.
Suzan also requested some members from the lower section to assist the ones at the upper section by showing them how the grass was chopped into small pieces so that they would all move on the same line. They thanked Suzan for the advice and program introduced and Suzan left the village.
