Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Tape and Suzan went to the village to continue teaching the members how to smear their buildings and also follow up on the improvements of other facilities. When they arrived there, they went to the meeting place and found the participants gathered with some of their committee group leaders. They were welcomed to the village and after exchanging greetings, the group chairperson informed Kibo staff how they were going to carry out the smearing demonstration at madam Florence’s home because she was one of the elderly women in the group yet very weak and sickly. Without wasting much time, they walked to that home together and began collecting dirt from a nearby bush while filling it into the basins and mixed it with water to make it thicker a bit because the house had never been smeared before. Kibo staffs began smearing the front of the kitchen while explaining to the members because some of them didn’t know how it was carried out. The members were then requested to join in the smearing so that they learn easily through participation. Some of them stood aside while others were behind the house until the house was successfully smeared. Tape and Suzan encouraged the members to continue smearing all their buildings since it was one of the main requirements needed before one received a fuel efficient stove. Before leaving the village, Suzan and Tape went and visited some homes while checking on their facilities and observed that some members had already smeared their buildings and repaired their facilities. Others needed to be improve on their facilities which looked poorly constructed. Kibo staffs requested the members to continue repairing and improving on their facilities before they received stoves in their kitchens. They thanked each one for attending the lessons and wished them a happy stay until the coming meeting.
