Enock first walked in the sections of the homes near the trading center on the main road to see how they are progressing, He saw some new latrines already constructed, one near a primary school. There are also some rubbish pits dug but the paths were not dug and cleared. Enock encouraged them to make proper paths to access the rubbish pits and properly use it. Enock also walked in the home of the witchh doctor called Patrick kabwa who constructed a new shower area constructed with cement and bricks. He encouraged him to dig a rubbish pit and also construct a better dish rack. They walked around and were able to see many new dish racks constructed. Most of the residents in this community have now completed the construction of latrines in their homes. Lessons of using ash were taught and demonstrated and emphasised in all the homes they walked in. Some of the people have already started using ash but they do it once in a week yet it should be used everyday. Enock encouraged them to also make hand washing facilities near the latrine to wash hands after using the latrine .

Village Notes
There is a family where a woman divorced and left the husband as well as 6 kids. The home is one of the dirtiest since the man is not always home and the kids are so young. Enock managed to talk to the chairman to see that they can help this family and talk to the resident to sort out and help this family.
