Lesson Taught
how to plant 
Abraham met twenty two Kivule community members and they discussed about the size of holes for Mvule which is 2x2x2 deep, the distance from a tree to another which is 30 meters or ninety feet. The spacing must be like that because Mvule grows big with large branches which may overlap if they are planted close to each other. There was a visitor from Bugweri district who visited the home of Nola and after listening about what Kibo does in village he requested Kibo to go and do something in their village. He said that he will mobilise the community and he said that on 15th this month he would like Kibo to visit his village, he saw the sign post which Kibo put in the village and he hopes if Kibo can do the same to his village in Bugweri sub county. Abraham told him that Kibo has forty village where they are working now and can not go to another district but he told him to wait may be one time Kibo can reach their village. Many members were doing the campaigning for the women representative on local council one.The chairman encouraged the members to go a head and start digging holes for the trees. The members are also using their stoves and also are helping other women in other villages to make the stoves, they said that they have made five stoves in Bubinga village as they teach them to do on their own. 

Next Visit: 2018-07-11 - Purpose: To check if they dug holes for Mvule well and also check on the spacing.
