Notes
Abraham met thirty nine Kivule community members and the chairman told the meeting that they went around and checked the trees for all the members and they are doing well only one member whose trees were stolen, there is one old man who said he wants twenty Musizi seedlings to plant because he knows they will help his grand children in future. Abraham thanked the members for keeping the trees well and advised them to cut a stem of banana plant and put near for trees to keep the moisture because rain is not sufficient. They discussed about writing their own constitution which is their plan to go forward.They made some by laws which govern the group for now but the want to include them in their constitution, last time one of the guy from another village promised to bring a copy of their constitution to the group so that they can also know how to write their own but he had not yet and Abraham called the guy who said that he has been having some problems but he will bring a copy to them on Saturday this week. They decided to grow G nuts as a group together in the next season and Abraham told them to start organizing because they have to know how many acres they will cultivate, it will be for hiring and if so how much per acre, how they will get seeds, weeding process. They said by next meeting they will come with all details and each member will know how much to contribute towards their goal.
