Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Suzan went to the village purposely to teach and guide the participants as they try to build the fuel efficient stoves on their own. However she was unable to do so because when she arrived, she found the group secretary and other few members at the meeting place who informed her about the sudden loss of one of the elderly members in the village early in the morning. And for that matter, the intended activity was postponed to another day because almost all the participants were preparing to go for the funeral. This was sad news however but before leaving the village, the members suggested they first visit a few homes with Suzan and monitor the improvement of some facilities which were going on like smearing of the buildings, repairing of the kitchens and other structures. Together they went and began visiting different homes while checking on their facilities and during the process, Suzan observed that some members had greatly improved on their sanitation and hygiene around their homes and also smeared their buildings such as the kitchens, shower areas,latrines and main houses. Other members also managed to construct the firewood storages inside their kitchens and stocked enough firewood on them which would take them for some time since it was rainy season. Suzan thanked them for the good work and encouraged the leaders to always continue working together with all the other group members while implementing the program activities and to welcome the new members who were interested and willing to join the stoves program. They thanked Suzan for the visit and advice given and wished each other a happy stay until the next coming meeting.
