Village Notes
David and steven went to Kagulu nabigalata to continue teaching hygiene and sanitation and following up on the remaining homes thst were lagging behind in the trading centre. They moved in the homes that were next to the swamp monitoring and checking on the progress as far as hygiene and sanitation are concerned only two members were left lagging on their home hygiene facilities in the section next to the swamp but the rest of the members next to the swamp had improved. They moved in the trading centre but they found that only three members were lagging behind but are working at improving on their facilities. The committee decided to be encouraging these homes by visiting them twice a week Monday and every Friday . The committee also agreed together with David and Steven to give those members a grace period of one week failure to improve the chairman of the village mr sanyu will be taking further action upon them. The committee members also said that they have been putting much emphasis on hygiene and sanitation improvements but by next week they will have finished moving around the entire village contributing money for the borehole account the treasurer had only collected 140000 shillings.Generally Kagulu nabigalata community have worked and improved on their hygiene and sanitation and are at 90% sanitation wise.
