community meeting 
Chris went to this village with the intention of meeting all the community members to continue guiding them through which economic activity to undertake, during the last meeting community members had identified the resources within their community to kickstart their economic activity so today‚Äôs meeting was intended ti continue guiding the community members to evaluate the economic activities and come up with the one activity however as soon as chris arrived, the chairperson of the community economic activities requsted for a meeting for only leaders, he said there were a number of issues to solve before they could start their economic activities, among the issus to solve were as follow; To scruitinize the list of community members who are committed to the development of the village. To address the problem of absenteesm among the community members. To guide the come up with realistic economic activities the community would engage in (the economic activities with less challenges). To decide whether to admit new members or proceed with the old list of community members. To dicuss how to raise the money to complete the registration of the community at the sub county snd district. All the above issues the chairperson said were to be discussed in absense of members except the community leaders, he said the community has over 70 homes but only 50% of homes attend the meetings especially during this critical stage of community development, the chairperson said many of the community members are so sceptic about the idea of working together snd registering the community with government , under this Chris said he will involve the CDO to come to the meeting and teach the community about the government programs and how to benefit from them. Chris said all the above issues will be solved when they meet the CDO. Chris also stated that the community leaders should involve every home during mobilization and tell them why they have to attend the meetings, he said some members do not show up to meetings simply because they are not invited and briefed about the lesson of the day, chris said this potrays the weakiness of leaders however, the chairperson pledged to reach every home ti mobilize them for the meeting with the CDO. Chris will plan with the CDO and visit the community to continue with guiding them through the economic activities of the community.
