Village Notes
This community was divided and disorganized when the government tried to give them a borehole last year. It took Kibo an extra mile to reorganize the community and prepare them very well before they could reach this step. The borehole survey was done successfully without any disruptions and fights as it was last time

Notes
It took two days before the surveyor could come up with a good water point to be drilled in Budumba. Alex was in Budumba on the 24/03/2018 and and spent part of the day of 25/ 03/2018 with the surveyor. This village too just like Buyange village, were very tricky for the surveyor to get good results that can be relied upon to find water. The people in Budumba had again become very worried that they were to miss out another chance again and had began to think that God does not love Budumba community. The first time when the government tried to punch a borehole in their village, the people were very disorganised and disrupted the whole process and so the borehole was not drilled. This time round the people were very organised and all maintained peace and participated in the whole process of the borehole survey. It was until the following day that the surveyor managed to get a water point that is very promising and all the people in the village were very happy. It still helped that this point is not off the village or very far from the people but relatively in the middle of the village. Our prayer is that this water point can have water when drilling takes place. Alex will have to go back and complete with the land agreement issue before drilling takes place. The land owner has to willingly provide a land agreement before the borehole can be drilled.
