Meeting the community 
Ida went to Maliga to assess all community empowerment lessons. She asked only the Kibo ambassadors to attend. Ida asked the ambassadors to tell her some lessons that she taught from the beginning. Fida Kasinga recalls all lessons because she is the main ambassador (leader) . Mutesi pulled out her note book and started teaching lesson after lesson! This was very good to see because not many community members write notes. Nabatanzi remembered some few( domestic violence, parenting and unity in marriage) and promised to teach those specifically. Ida was happy that the people she is leaving behind are going to do the best. She encouraged the ambassadors to work together and help each other where necessary. Ida reminded them that she’s not going forever but will be visiting once in a while and also will be communicating on phone sometimes. Fida Kasinga said that she was trained by experts from Busoga Bible School in Jinja. So if there will be any thing needed in form of lessons, she will get them. Ida asked Mr.Kasinga to pray for the ambassadors that God gives them wisdom, strength and ability to continue with the work that God has entrusted them with.
