Ownership Story
The community now is on the process of building stoves on their own. Those without certain home facilities don’t get stoves until they have all the required facilities.

Water Access Explain
Sinde is the only village with the best water that isn’t salty in the whole subcounty. So this makes the well to be over pumped and yet it’s of low yield. But they are thankful for their well. 
Prevent Ownership

Kibo lessons from different programs. 
Village Notes
Sinde is one of the unique communities. They decided to maintain the standards of hygiene and sanitation. If a community member doesn’t have the requirements needed to acquire a stove, they sit and see whether the member is too old, weak,sick to build the facilities. If found under the above categories, they help as much as they can and build all the needed facilities. But if found strong and healthy , no stove. This practice has helped Sinde maintain the standards of hygiene.

Lesson Taught
Poultry Day 2 
Ida went to Sinde and taught about the types of feeds given to chickens. She started with reviewing the previous lessons about hatching. She asked the community to explain the process of hatching from when the chicken starts looking for a laying area. Isaac stood and thanked Kibo for the opportunity, he said that first look for cotton clothes and make a laying bed for the chicken, and make sure the place is warm and dry. When the chicken starts laying eggs, mark each egg by the date and month with a pencil not a pen. When the first chicken starts incubation, boil the oldest egg and give it. The chicken will think that it’s on the eggs. When the last chicken starts the incubation process, remove the boiled egg and give her the good ones. Matrida continued from where Isaac stopped saying that prepare feeds and glucose plus vaccines before the chickens hatch. Glucose is given to chics the first three hours and then chic and duck marsh for eight weeks. Ida was impressed because some of people didn’t take notes because they cannot write and read. Titi and some men started naming the six types of eggs that are not good for incubation. This made the group laugh because they didn’t expect Titi to say anything because he is ever quiet. Ida asked the community members to get their books and pens for the next lesson. There are some members who preferred to keep broilers to locals. Broilers have two types of feeds, a. Broiler starter. b Broiler finisher. Broilers starte Maize brand. 58kgs Cotton seed cake. 24kgs Silver fish 14kgs Shells. 300gms Pre mix. 500gms Salt. 500gms Broiler finisher Maize brand. 58.2mgs Cotton seed cake. 30kgs Silver fish. 8kgs Pre mix. 400gms Salt. 400gms If you cannot get silver fish, soybeans can do the same thing. If cotton seed cake is a problem to get, sunflower seed can do the same. Remember to give lots of water to the chickens.
