New Wood Burning Stoves Supplied and Fitted

All four schools have just received double wood burning stoves. This will massively improve the time and fuel efficiency when cooking lunch for the children. The stoves were funded by a grant from Denbigh Rotary Club matched by donations from Friends of Kanzi-Kibera. The stoves were built, supplied and fitted by a local company, Sanjo, with a representative also providing training for the cooks in their use, cleaning and maintenance.

At Gifted Hands, there is ample space for their new stove; however, they currently don’t have food preparation surfaces, which they have been advised to add. They were also advised, during the training session, to create a designated safe storage space for their firewood. Fruitful also has plenty of space for the new stove in the kitchen, and they too have been asked to also consider adding food preparation surfaces. If you would like to make a donation towards food preparation surfaces for these two schools, please let us know.

At Cana, a section of the school building has recently been demolished to allow for road construction by the government. Therefore, the stoves have been fitted into a temporary space until the new facilities are rebuilt. Sanjo’s staff have promised to come back when the building is complete, to help with relocation. At Linda Care, kitchen space is very tight. However, because the walls are not permanent, they intend to move one of the partitions to create enough room around the stove for easier movement while cooking.

A huge thank you, from the staff and children of all four schools, to Denbigh Rotary Club and to our other Friends for their kind donations, without which the new stoves would not have been possible.
