Lesson Taught
Abraham Reece and shana visited Kivule community and met fifteen members. The chairman LC1 thanked Kibo for helping people with their hygiene and sanitation, building stoves as well as providing clean water. The ladies are continuing to make stoves for other new members but they said that some people think that every meeting is for the stove making group. Abraham discussed with them about the Mvule program and there was a man from Bubinga village who requested Kibo to go and work with them because for him he has planted some trees and he is getting a problem of neighbours cutting his trees for fire wood, sometimes when he is not around they come and cut his trees but if they can also plant they will not be bother him. The chairman LC1 said that they are willing to work with Kibo to help the community plant the trees and he gave an example that sometime back women were not getting difficulty to get fire wood but now he is having cases of stealing fire wood. It started raining so hard and they left the village because of the bad roads. They got stuck near Namutumba district and pushed the car until they managed to move towards Namutumba town. The government leaders said that it was because of rain that is why the turn up was low but they promised to mobilise the members for the next meeting.r
