Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village to continue following up on the improvement of the healthy and safe kitchens facilities like smearing of the buildings,construction of the firewood stands and kitchen roofs. When she arrived there, she went to the meeting place and found Sanyo the group chairperson with other members gathered under a tree. She was warmly welcomed to the village and after settling down and exchanging greetings, Suzan briefed the members on the purpose of the visit that day and how the activity was going to be carried out. Before they started moving around, the chairperson made some updates on the activities going on so far such as repairing facilities and smearing buildings, and then they got up and began walking around the village while monitoring different program facilities at the participants homes. Suzan noticed that some structures were well constructed and smeared in some homes, while others were not well maintained such as the kitchens with poor roofs, the bathrooms, latrines and main houses which needed to be smeared. Other kitchens didn’t have the firewood storages inside and the dish racks were eaten up by the termites. Suzan kept on advising the members to improve on their facilities before they received the fuel efficient stoves and requested them to always work together as a team most especially helping those who didn’t know or looked vulnerable. The chairperson and the other group leaders promised to work together and assist other members to improve on their facilities before they received the fuel efficient stoves in their kitchens. They thanked Kibo staff for the visit and lessons taught and the meeting came to an end.
