Nawampiti - Nawampiti 1 
Alex first moved in 10 homes checking on the hygiene facilities before he joined the community for the meeting. He noticed that there were 5 new dish racks that had just been constructed by the people. When he asked them about the new dish racks, they told Alex that they learnt a lot from Tom and the Clts program teaching them the importance of having a clean home with all the facilities in place. Tom spent close to two years teaching about hygiene and sanitation in Nawampiti. He looked at the pit latrines also and noticed that they were still in use and 4 of those needed to work on the structures because they were getting very old. One of the toilet was almost full and the owner promised that he was to start on a new one soon. The bathing shelters were some how a challenge as well because of the heavy rains we’ve had recently, most structures have been badly damaged and need to work on them and to build new ones. He also learnt that another NGO called water mission international has just come in to teach them more about hygiene and sanitation and the community is responding to that as well. While in the meeting, Alex realized that this community is divided and it’s because of politics. The government is organizing LC 1&2 elections country wide but this has divided them. They lack respect for one another and looked very disorganized. The area current chairman is no longer being respected at all and many people don’t even want to listen to him. Alex hoped to have a short meeting at first about a way forward and why Kibo was back to work with them but it ended up being so long because he had to unite the people and the importance of working together to lift Nawampiti. The people were very happy when they heard that Kibo was back in their community because Kibo was to help to bring them together. Alex told them to love one another, respect each other and this is the only way they will uplift their community. Nawampiti will come up if only the people live in harmony and work together. They were so happy that Kibo was back to partner with them and even have their two boreholes function well. The LC3, mr Bagise thanked Kibo for supplementing government programs and stretching a hand to many communities in Nsinze sub-county. Alex will go back to continue with the baseline survey and evaluate the hygiene status of this village.
