Notes
David and Steven were in the village to have a meeting with the water user committee training them about their roles and responsibilities . Later they followed up on the village contributions and also encouraged the community members to improve on their sanitation standards. David and Steven started their meeting with an opening prayer followed by the hearing from the Kibo staff. The Kibo staff started the training by asking the committee members whether they knew their roles and responsibilities . The committee members about four of them didn’t know their roles as to why they were elected.On that note David taught them by discussing the following responsibilities, That they are supposed to take a lead towards the sanitation improvement campaigns in their village.David told them that it is their role to education by mobilizing all the entire community members about the Safe water chain .He also set for the committee members the right standards of the different sanitation facilities in the home . For example the shower areas should be tall enough and the door to keep the privacy,dish-racks to be constructed should be made of good big poles and two stages and on the same facility he went around showing the members how the best dish rack would look like because he had one good photo on his phone ,rubbish pits 4x6 size ,hand washing facilities should be well designed and placed most of the member even demonstrated how a good hand washing facility would look like ,kitchens should be well smeared ,roofed and constructed. When the Kibo staff had finished discussing and setting up the right standards of the facilities they asked the members what was the status of their borehole contributions,they said that they had contributed 100000 shillings and still they were contributing so that God willingly by the end of their set deadline date of 10/9/2018 they hope they will have completed their borehole contributions of 500000 shillings. On addition to thatDavid advised the members to set the weekly days when they will be moving home to home encouraging a bout sanitation improvements and facility maintenance . In order their role and work to be consistent always because David was hoping the next planting season would be soon . The members said that they will try their level best so that everyone meets the set deadline date . In general according to the Kibo staff,s assessment they discovered that only three people who were not having toilet in their homes one of them was still digging and the two had completed constructing shelters around their toilets. The Kibo staff together with committee members replaced the members who were non performers with two active members. They did so because they wanted the sanitation work to move more efficiently. The Kibo staff had to stop their discussions because of time they promised the committee members that ,they will be going back to assess the progress . 

Next Visit: 2018-07-30 - Purpose: Following up on on the work of sanitation improvements and maintenance in the different homes.
