Alex B on his way to Bupaluka two and half kilometers to the meeting place, the car got stuck in the mud in the swamp as it had rained the previous night. It took them time as Alex was looking for people to help them come out from that place.people had to look for sticks and some dry material to put there so that the car can go over as they push the car.Alex B found when most of them had gone back to their homes as it was threatening to rain. They decided to go to one of the members called Zaituna Naigaga to find out the size of her plot of land as the plan was to visit members homes and to begin with those that have small plots. The rain was threatening again but they decided to go and do the demonstration of how to dig the pit and succeeded with her and the rain started as they were discussing how to fill back the soil with compost manure. The members had to look for shelter from the rain as Alex also went back where the car was parked and left because of the bad path. They could not continue anymore because of the rain. 

Next Visit: 2018-06-27 - Purpose: To do the demonstration how to dig the pit and check up with members in their homes and also check with those that have small plots .
