Bulyowa B - Bulyowa b borehole 
David ,HPM from the district mr kabugo and Steven went to bulyowa ,their intention of going there was to guide the community members as they we’re enacting the bylaws which would be followed as they use their borehole. The Kibo staff started by thanking the committee members for their efforts ,time and cooperation amongst all the community members . The community members were given chances for airing out views how they would safeguard the sustainability of their borehole . All the members who had turned up for that meeting agreed on the following by lows they were about fifteen bi laws to be followed as they use their borehole. for example; 1.for failure to pay borehole fee,it will lead to a punishment between the residents and the district water office. 2.Once any member is caught in the act of breaking the padlock, this may lead to imprisonment because that act would be regarded as vandalizing the borehole. 3.The owners of the cows would not be allowed to share the same borehole water instead they will be taking the water in any container aside from the borehole for their animals to avoid the cows from contaminating the compound of the borehole. 4.Abusing the caretaker would lead to a fine of about 5000 failure to pay it would lead to the committee handing the case to the chairman of the borehole and village local council. 5.Reckless pumping everyone is responsible for the good pumping of the borehole by not not sending younger children to the borehole the recommendable age was agreed upon as being seven years and above. 6.Protecting the borehole compound clean they said that every Sunday will be a day for cleaning. 7.Jerrycans should be clean ,their homes,and the compound should always be swept by every member.Also they said that those with dirty jerrycans will not be allowed to get water from the borehole. 8.They agreed that men and old people once they would be having less than two jerrycans would be granted a chance of getting water first. 9.The time for the closure and opening of the borehole will be 05:00am and 8:00pm. 10.Once caught with a pole from the borehole fence or breaking the fence will lead to the construction of anew fence by the victim who will be caught in the act. There are about 15 bi-laws. On addition to the above the Kibo staff encouraged the members much more about full ownership and care of their borehole,and also talked much about all the residents maintaining the required sanitation standards.They told them that it wouldn’t be always kibo to repair for them their borehole whenever it breaks down. They were encouraged always to have a-good active borehole account for that case they agreed together with the Kibo staff to always be contributing twice a year and also opening up an account in the bank for the future sustainability of their borehole . They told Kibo staff the amount they had for their borehole account as being 250,000 shillings. Therefore Kibo staff encouraged them to always have borehole meetings to kind of evaluate where there is need for improvements.In general the hygiene standards of the entire community is good to the required set standards .
