The borehole installation was recently completed in this village on the 24/05/2018. Alex and two interns, Spencer and Elizabeth went to Budumba to have a meeting with the community members aimed at guiding them on the standard of the new fence that they are planning to build on this borehole. Alex showed the community members the size of the poles to be used and the distance from the slab. Also Alex told the community members that turned up for the meeting that, clean water can only stay clean if all use clean containers(Jerrycans) and water ending up in clean homes. In doing this, we will ensure a safe and clean water chain. The only reason why Kibo ensured to clean the village first was to create a safe chain in that when the community has clean water, then it will end up in clean homes. Alex continued to tell the community members that they had worked very hard in all the Kibo programs and they should therefore never go back to the old life style of the people not knowing the importance of proper hygiene and sanitation. The community also need to know all their roles and responsibilities towards the borehole and what they have to do in order to take good care of their borehole. Alex told the community members that it was very important for everyone to have equal responsibility on their borehole rather than thinking that it only refers to the water committee members. The community also suggested that they needed to form by laws that will guide them on proper management of the borehole something that is mandatory in Kibo’s curriculum before the borehole is commissioned. This step will be met in the next meeting with the community and follow up on the new fence that they will have constructed as told by Alex. The soak pit also has to meet the required standard(5ft by 5ft by 4ft). All this needs to be met before the borehole is commissioned. It’s advised that the new borehole slab takes 14 days to dry before starting to use the borehole.
