Enock and Martin, visited Bukudumila village to meet with the local leaders, walk around in some homes to check on the progress of latrine construction, dish racks, kitchen area, shower area, clean compounds, smeared facilities, rubbish pits and other facilities. During the meeting with the local leaders, Enock encouraged the local leaders to take the lead in their community, monitor, encourage their fellow residents on the values of good sanitation. After the meeting, we walked around home which had constructed new hand washing facilities, checked on the sanitation of the latrines, encouraged the families on the Benefits of using Ash in latrines. There are also some home which have greatly improved with good standard facilities, constructed with bricks, cement and sand.
