I see a need for women empowerment program or the CEP program due to the fact that many of the women do not speak up. Also there is still need for more water due to congestion at the one Kibo well

Notes
This visit to Sinde was aimed at showing some of the district officials what Kibo had done in the district and that Kibo was still active in the district. This came as result that the office that deals with NGOs in the district claimed that Kibo was not known in the district and so Roy who was pursuing a new Kibo registration was denied until the office of the district community development officer went on ground to see what exactly Kibo had done. They asked Kibo to take them to the villages where we have worked before so the district can go a head to renew the registration and sign memorandum of understanding with Kibo. Alex went a head and scheduled an appointment with the DCDO and the CDOs to visit the communities in Namayingo where Kibo has worked. Due to along meeting that was taking place at the district offices, Alex kept waiting outside for two and half hours and they reached Sinde later in the afternoon. They found about 60 people waiting for them and the meeting begun immediately The community told the government officials what Kibo had done in their communities like a new borehole, trees and goats and they were thanking Kibo for the support rendered. Also amongst the group that turned up for the meeting, were two people from Syanyonja community one of the other community that has actively participated in the Kibo programs. They also told the DCDO and the CDOs what they have achieved through Kibo group, this community got a borehole, trees, goats. The people in Sinde also brought some of their goats to show to the officials to prove that they received them from Kibo group. They also appreciated Kibo for the borehole that has got good water and not salty as compared to the rest of the boreholes they have in the sub-county. It's believed to be the best borehole in the sub-county with the best water for drinking. This creates Congestion at this well since many people come here to get drinking water. The Mvule group comprised of 100 members also the guests saw the Mvule trees they received from Kibo. Then after all the people had spoken the good things that Kibo had done in their communities, the district officials testified that Kibo has seriously helped many people in the community having witnessed a lot of good things. They called on every one to be responsible and to take ownership of what had been done in their communities. They thanked the active water committee in sinde that has maintained the monthly contribution of 1000sh per home and now they have been able to fix their borehole 4 times using their money and they now have 300000sh. The DCDO called on them to remain active and also make sure that they give reports to the sub-county about what they are doing and that the government would consider them for any program that might come up. Alex also told them about the functioning well in Namayuge that was drilled by Kibo and the CDO from Buswale knows about it.
