Some members who spend most of their time in their gardens not balancing between garden work and home hygiene sanitation work
The new formed water and sanitation committee is hard working
About 60% of the homes have got good toilets and other facilities. Therefore there is more effort needed to encourage the 40% of the remaining homes to improve on their sanitation facilities.

David and Steven were in Bukudumira to guide the community members as they were selecting anew water user committee for the borehole. That borehole had taken more than a year not working .For that reason David and Steven met to discuss how much the community will be contributing towards their borehole account. After having met and discussed together in the meeting , they together agreed that each member was supposed to contribute 12000 shillings towards the borehole account. Since they were about 42 members David and Steven thought if they all contributes they would be able to raise 540000shillings. The Kibo staff encouraged all the residents to be part of the contribution. David and Steven after having guided the new committee they come up with anew water and sanitation committee comprising of 8 members .
David and Steven discussed together with the community their roles and responsibilities,They were told to involve everyone in the sanitation improvement campaign. They were also supposed to encourage each member to contribute in time for the proper borehole repair planning.David continued and encouraged the V H T,s which were included on the committee to always set the rightful facility standards and sizes .In general the community of Bukudumira they had worked about 70% but because of the heavy rains ,some few residents were lagging behind ,therefore there is still more need towards their sanitation improvement .
