Tom made a visit to the village of kishaike to move around and take pictures that show the current sanitation standards in the village as well as assessing the levels of sanitation and hygiene. He also moved around the village while mobilizing the community residents and discussing with them about sanitation and hygiene in there homes as well as the value as to why they should turn up for triggering whenever they are called to the meeting. Tom started off with two vhts from kishaike village before they were joined by the chairman of the village. In the first homes near the borehole, they found a new latrine pit being dug while at the neighborhood, there was a new pit of about 20ft. In the ho,es in the lower section they found several cases of Open defecation while some latrines were not well maintained and taken care of well. There Wes also a section which had many homes and people sharing one small latrine and it was full. In all those homes, Tom spoke about the sanitation and hygiene standards and levels in there homes and later would talk about the lessons about triggering that would help them. Most residents were saying they would come to the triggering and learn about sanitation and hygiene. In one home of the new chairman 2, Tom encouraged him to join kibo and the rest of the community members in improving the sanitation and hygiene standards in his village. He was very happy about the program and offered his support to kibo in the effort to improve the sanitation and hygiene standards of kishaike village. After moving around, there was a discussion about how Kibo will be working in the village. Because of the new political divisions in the village, kishaike was divided in to two villages. According to the baseline survey, one section of the village was surveyed which is also the original kishaike village. But it does not have any vht as the vhts remained in the other section of kishaike that was cut off from the original kishaike village. The vhts feel it’s important to combine the two villages instead of one. This would call for new baseline as well as more homes and Tom left the discussion to the chairman and requested that the discussion will be,continued in his next visit to the village and after he left for jinja.
