Notes
Abraham, Henry, Jeff, Patie and Brenda met fifty two Ikumbya community members and they went around checking members homes and found many using their saver stoves, they also checked the bore hole which they found is in a good condition. The visitors planted three Mvule trees and the village was given two hundred Mvule seedlings to plant. They were so happy even if it was raining they managed to have a meeting at the church near a school and the headmaster of that school shut it down and brought the children to the meeting which was really good for them to also learn what is going on in their village. They discussed about the importance of trees to the people and they promised to keep the Mvule trees alive by putting cages around them so that animals can not destroy them. They were left with a task to plant the trees. Henry thanked the headmaster for bringing the children for the meeting because they are the next generation. 

Next Visit: 2018-05-16 - Purpose: To check how they planted the Mvule trees.
