Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village to teach the participants how to practically remove the banana stems from the previous built stoves and to follow up on the other facilities. When she arrived there, She went to the chairperson’s home and found her with other members preparing to go to the homes where they had previously built the old stoves. Together they walked there and found most members already gathered waiting for the lessons. Suzan first thanked them for working together and then requested them to enter into the kitchen with her. Sulai one of the male members and Suzan began taking out the stems as they all watched from aside. Some members kept on asking questions during the whole process which was very good because it showed that they were willing to learn. The banana stems were taken out from two stoves that day and Suzan went and visited a few homes nearby especially those that needed to improve on their facilities. She observed that most buildings needed to be smeared because all the dirt was washed off by the rainfalls. This was one of the challenges the community was facing so far and some facilities needed to be reconstructed. One of the leaders informed Suzan how most members would repair their facilities once the rains stopped or reduced. She encouraged the members not to lose hope but to continue working together during all the program activities for an effective development and the meeting came to an end.
