Enock and Martin went to Bukudumila village to check on latrine construction in target homes which were constructing during the previous visit. They also went to check on the construction of hand washing facilities, the maintenance, and usage of hand washing stations. They also focused on educating the residents about the importance of soak pits and proper drainage systems on shower areas. As they walked around, they met with the chairman and VHTs to continue sensitizing, encouraging, teaching the residents the benefits of sanitation and hygiene. When they were walking around, they are some residents who appreciated so greatly the work that kibo has done in their village, many people who didn’t have latrines, are now having them, diarrhea has greatly reduced, families can be able to spent enough time in their gardens not worrying about diseases that lead to a lot of expenses on medication. The community members who have all the facilities where emphasized to continue smearing the facilities, use of ash to chase flies out of their latrines which are great agent of germ transfer. On the side of hand washing station, the residents in the lower section of the village embraced the program, built good hand washing stations which are functioning. We found water in most of the hand washing facilities and showed how the people are using them. During the discussion with the chairman and his VHTs we decided to now focus on homes which are located in the upper section of this village since most people who are constructing latrines are in the upper section. This will help to increase the speed and improve on the sanitation levels. There are so many good stoves which are constructed and well smeared
