David and Steven as they were in the village . They Were joined by lsiko Wilson the mayor and David kukuta the head of the youth in the different homes which were reflected in the third evaluation having cases of open deification. Out of the 10 homes which David and the team first targeted to visit. Only 3 homes were noted to be still practicing open deification. Therefore David encouraged the village mayor mr lsiko Wilson and David kukuta the head of the youth to continue encouraging the three homes . In order to prevent the transfer of diarrheal diseases from the three homes to the neighbors. David also reminded the two of the committee members who had joined them later afterward while they were in Kannwa Samson’s home . He thought them that they should love their neighbors an extra mile . Since God loves everyone equally. They were advised to continue advising the three-homes without getting tired not until they get to improve. The challenge which was noted in the other 8 homes which had latrines in their homes was the issue of them missing good dish racks. Since quite a good number of those who were in place were older. Therefore David advised the committee members that always in the sanitation improvement meetings they were plan to have as a village. They should encourage and emphasize much more about the members contributing good standardized dish racks . David also advised them committee members to always control a lot of the flies in some latrines which were a halfway getting filled up. To practice the use of ash. From there David and his team went to the borehole because he wanted to check on its status. The status of the borehole was good except that the sock-pit which they were advised to enclose it with a good . They told the Kibo staff that the status of their borehole account was good . However David advised them to continue contributing money towards their borehole account.To avoid the sudden future expenses Incase of any future brokerages In general according to the sanitation status of the 40 homes the Kibo visited they were meeting the standard.Except the 3 homes that are yet to work and construct their latrine. However the main challenge was the standardized dish racks and the provisions of the hand washing facilities.
