Notes
David and Steven were in the village their intention of going there was to assess the borehole status as well as the sanitation standards of the entire village. While in the village David and Steven first visited the borehole. Unfortunately they found when the borehole status was not good because the borehole poles and fence were not in good condition. Therefore the Kibo staff had to visit the homes of some committee members . That was in miss miliya the borehole care taker and mr kifukwa’s the treasurer . They wanted know why the borehole had not been taken good care of . The members told the Kibo staff that it was because of themselves as the borehole committee members who were not cooperating . And some committee members for example the treasurer mr kifukwa wanted to resign from his post. But it was all because of the misunderstandings between themselves. The mobilizer mr wabwose John told the Kibo staff that they had 300000 shillings as their borehole account balance. David thought that what was important was to plan for a village general borehole improvement meeting . Which he thought would kind of remind and revive the village members about their roles and full responsibilities about their borehole. However on the side of sanitation the village was good . Except some few homes which were advised to improve their shower areas.
