David was in Kagulu he walked from the trading centre towards the lower section of Bugiri primary school. He was moving home to home while encouraging about sanitation improvements and standards. While David was in the trading centre he visited some of these homes. Mis Jamila. Nasilumbi for her she was so busy working to improve on her kitchen roof shelter as well as constructing anew dish rack . David was so much encouraged with her and encouraged Nasilumbi Jamila to double her efforts even when improving on her latrine construction which half way. David also visited mr Isimah . Kawuta,s home .He had started the digging of his latrine pit about 7 feet deep. Therefore David advised him to straighten the latrine pit edges during the digging process of his latrine pit because they were not good and straight to avoid the latrine bottom surface collapsing inside . David also visited mr Charles onywa who owns a-bar . David was so much encouraged with him because he had constructed his new latrine pit about 37 feet deep .mr Charles Anywa even told David that he will be adding 4 more extra feet .Because he was always going to accommodate a lot of people at his bar. From the trading centre David moved towards the lower section to bugiri primary school. Towards lower section David visited mr Tom’s home for him he had all the necessary sanitation facilities in place . However David encouraged Mr Tom to only improve on the shower area which was shorter and not meeting the required sanitation standards. David continued to the second home in the lower section to mr Buyinza Bosco’s home . He had all the necessary home sanitation facilities in place . But unfortunately he was left to improve on his shower area. Therefore David advised him to also maintain and improve on his old shower area. Because it was too dirty inside. The Kibo staff continued in the home of mr Mukama Godfrey . He had started the digging of his latrine pit about 7 feet deep . But he was still digging he told the Kibo staff that he wanted a pit of 20 feet deep. David advised him to effectively dig every day in order to achieve the depth he wanted . Because of the limited time factor David was forced to end from there. And visited the chairman of the village for more encouragements and advises during when the Kibo staff are away from the village. In general Kagulu is improving more effectively from the trading centre towards the lower section of bugiri primary school. However the only challenge is all the members digging and constructing at the same times flame.
