Ws Notes
David and Steven went to kigalama to continue teaching and training of the water user committee as well as moving around the entire village encouraging the residents about old facility maintenance and new facility construction. They first moved around the entire village in about 80 homes their intention of doing that first was to see were the greater need of improvement was . According to their home to home movement together with the chairman of the village mr Wilber while accessing and encouraging the residents to improve they discovered that there was need for some community members to work and improve on their sanitation standards .Also the greater challenge noted was that the majority of the community members didn’t have dish racks instead were just laying their dishes on the ground . Another problem discovered and noted as they were walking home to home was that since that village has a-trading centre ,some members don’t have their own homes instead they were thinking that probably it wasn’t their responsibility to work and maintain on some of their old sanitation facilities. Therefore David kept on encouraging and reminding them that the houses were not theirs but some of the sanitation facilities are there’s they need to improve on them.After all that David,the chairman of the village and Steven went for the small meeting which was intended to have away forward for what they had seen and discovered in the quite a-good number of homes .David first appreciated the committee members for loving and working for the betterment of their village,then the chairman mr Wilber suggested that the best way how to help the members who were renting was to call the landlords because he said he had all their contacts.Secondly David also encouraged the committee members to continue encouraging the residents who were renting houses to start working on the rest of the other facilities in their homes for example dish racks,shower areas,putting hand washing facilities in place because they don’t hope for the owners of the houses to even dig rubbish pits for their tenants . The committee members agreed to be moving twice a week while encouraging members to improve on their sanitation standards. They also discussed how they could help the three families which were using the school latrine . They agreed on giving them a grace period of two weeks before they get to dig their own latrine therefore the chairman Lc1 mr Wilber said he was going to visit them and worn them.After that all David asked the area councilor mis zaama how much they had collected as their borehole contribution she said that 200000 shillings but she hopes by the time the residents accomplishes with the work of improving on their home hygiene facilities to the required standards they will have collected the remaining balance which was 100000 shillings. They completed their small meeting with the committee members when they had agreed on having a general village meeting which would bring everyone on board in the village as far as hygiene and sanitation are concerned because some of the members in the different homes were not there in their homes by the time the chairman together with the Kibo staff were moving home to home while encouraging about good standardization of their home facilities.In general the majority of the community members have got permanent latrines except a few who were having old ones which required maintenance and improvement.
