Notes
Abraham met thirty Kivule community members and the chairman told the meeting that they have been waiting for the guy who promised to send them a copy of their constitution so that they can get the idea how to write their own but he has not done it. He said that they called him and he said he is going to bring a copy but he said he has lost a relative and he is going to do it next week. Abraham advised them as they wait for the other copy to start discussing what they hope to do together as a group because when the will get the other copy they will just know how to fix already what they have been discussing into the other constitution. He advised then not to copy and pest because what is in that copy is for the other village not Kivule. They started discussing what they hope to do and one member brought a suggestion of keeping chickens as a group, he said that they can start slowly by encouraging each member then in future they may think about doing a joint one as a group and all the members agreed to start with chicken. They start a church in the village and they are contributing money to buy a land where they will construct a church building.
