Notes
Abraham, Alex B and Ida Bazoonona met thirty seven Kivule community members and they gave the community two hundred Mvule seedlings, fifty Giant Lira and fifty Musizi. They members were very happy to receive the trees because some people have not even thought that Mvule is planted, they were excited to see the Mvule seedlings and some said they have never seen the seeds. Abraham showed the community how to plant the Mvule seedling, they have to make sure the soil does not exceed that on the seedling because if it exceeds then that tree is likely to die. The chairman told the members that some people have been complaining about the ground being dry but he said it is good that last night it rained heavily and now the ground is soft and he encouraged those who have not finished mixing the soil with the manure to do it quickly. They are still waiting for a copy of the constitution which was promised by a member of Busesa village. Abraham told them that he will call him to make sure he brings a copy to them, they met and discussed what they hope to do as a community together but they are still struggling to have one thing to because many have different ideas. Abraham told them to have a meeting and at least one thing they hope to do as a community. They are going to plant trees and they asked for more Musizi than Giant Lira.
