Introduction Lorna was in Kigalama/Kavule to introduce life skills to this village section.kigalama is divided into about 8 Local councils. Life skills however will be working in three of these sections; kigalama trading center, Kavule and Namuseno. This is because these are the areas that other Kibo programs have worked. Overview On the way to this village Lorna kept trying to get in touch with anyone from this village but in vain. When Lorna was nearing Namutumba District is when she was able to reach the secretary of Kibo Group. Lorna asked whether he had communicated to anyone in the Kavule section which he said no he had not. Lorna‚Äôs plan was to introduce life skills to this section. Lorna together with him(waiswa) decided to drive to this section since Lorna was not very sure about this section. Together they moved around mobilizing people for the next meeting scheduled Friday 24. Lorna was also able to meet the chairman LC1 of this area and exchanged contacts. She also met Kagoya Dorothy a woman leader who she asked to help mobilize the rest of the women and other members to come to the meeting on Friday .
