Water Access Explain
The majority of community members do not access to water easily reason being the only near by water source near and with in the community is the one which is not working and Kibo is intending to patter with the community of kagulu to repair it. 
Prevent Ownership
The majority of the members are busy in their gardens harvesting pea nuts.Secondly some men work in different places therefore leaving the work for only the ladies who stay home always. 
Allow Ownership
The committee members are so hard working and have the heart for their village hence they keep on uniting and encouraging all the community members to be part of any development going on in their village.Secondly the majority of the community members have known the values of hygiene and sanitation and their responsibilities as citizens of the village. 
Village Notes
David and Steven went to kagulu nabigalata their intention of going there was have a community meeting aimed at accessing the work done ,what should be done next hence bring every community member on board as far as hygiene and sanitation are concerned.Because some committee members have not been working together hence leaving a big gap and more responsibility on Kibo staff and to a few committee members.kibo staff strongly encouraged all the committee members to work together for the betterment of kagulu nabigalata community.Kibo staff appreciated the lc1 of the village mr Sanyo who never had a toilet ,and now he constructed one. They went further and appreciated the five homes whose facilities were not up to standard for their effort in making them look better.Generally kagulu nabigalata is showing great progress as far as hygiene and sanitation are concerned.
