constitution writing 
Abraham, Alex B, Chad Smith and Susan Keddi met forty one Ikumbya community members and they went around checking how they are keeping the trees, hygiene and sanitation. They went to check their bore and found they have put a new fence around it and they brought sand near the bore hole so that every body has to clean their jerrycans before they get clean water. They proceeded to meeting place where the members had gathered and the chairman told the meeting that they finished their constitution and they went through it and now it is ready to take to the sub county so that the CDO can go through it. They have maintained their stoves well and also they are teaching another village called Buutu and they have built seven stoves, they said they want them to learn so that they can also help other villages. Abraham thanked them for the hard work they are doing and encouraged them to keep that unity. He also told them that they can change anything in the constitution if they see that it does not work because something can work today and tomorrow it may not so they need to know that they can change anything to fit what they want to do. Chad Smith thanked the members for welcoming him with singing and dancing, all great things they have to make good kitchens, stoves and hygiene and sanitation.He said he wants to come back and see what they are doing. 

Next Visit: 2018-10-18 - Purpose: To discuss the advise of CDO about their constitution
