Mvule Community Development 
Lesson Taught
constitution writing 
Abraham met thirty four Kivule community members at their usual place where they meet. The chairman thanked the members for keeping trees well, he said that it has been raining and they checked all the trees are doing well. He thanked Kibo for bringing more trees to the community because the ones they received at first some of them were stolen by some people but for the second time all trees are good and no report about stealing. They started discussing about what they want to do as a village and members brought in their suggestions, one said that since the are peasants they need to see how they grow crops and look for market as a group. The most majority decided that they are going to keep animals like pigs or goats, they said that Muslims can keep goats and none Muslims can keep pigs. They said more time to discuss how they will do it because they have to pave a way how they will do it as individuals or as a group. Abraham thanked the members for caring for the trees and advised them to continue thinking what they can do not to be only on one thing but to continue thinking because something the think it will work it may not work and if they have other things gives them to change and try another thing. He told them that everything has advantages and disadvantages but they need to be trying. Abraham encouraged to continue getting ideas and they will be changing their constitution to fit what they want to do at that time. 

Next Visit: 2018-10-22 - Purpose: To finalize their constitution and go through it with all members
