David and Steven went to naibowa to continue encouraging the community members about good hygiene and sanitation as well as safe water chain. They first moved in about 40 homes to monitor and access the sanitation progress around the village.Having walked in the forty homes, Kibo staff discovered that there was great need for the residents to work and improve on their hygiene standards . They also visited the most stubborn members whose homes were lagging behind during the time when the WASH was still active in this village.For example in mr Tigawalanas he had finished digging his toilet about 15 feet but has not constructed on it. They also went in bizikilas home who they also found had finished the construction of his new latrine. Kibo staff then called for a appreciated those two people for the great change and improvement. Kibo staff then called for a meeting which was aimed at encouraging everyone to improve by constructing and maintaining on their home hygiene facilities to the required sanitation standards. kibo staff started by thanking those who had maintained the required hygiene standards. The other residents were just airing out their challenges for example; the rains that were filling back their rubbish pits with running water. They also mentioned that their committee needs replacement. The treasurer also told the Kibo staff that because the borehole they had repaired had issues of the water being salty ,they didn’t have any money for their borehole account.Kibo staff David and Steven plan on having a general meeting with the whole community on their next visit. ln general the hygiene standards of the village wasn’t bad only there was great need for improvement and maintenance of the old facilities .
