Tom and a police officer from Namutumba made a visit to igerera village to check on the sanitation and hygiene improvements as well as facility construction especially the roofing of latrines. When they arrived in the village, they met the chairman at the church were he was helping in the construction of the church latrine. They were building the wall of the latrine when Tom and the police officer arrived. They chairman said he was very happy for kibo and for its work in the village to improve its sanitation and hygiene. He said his church did not have a latrine but he was happy that now his church will have a latrine. From there they started moving towards the lower section and along the way, they met a latrine recently roofed with the iron sheet. Tom encouraged the resident of the home to secure the roof very well. They also moved to other home were they found an elderly couple constructing there latrine. They are yet to roof it but Tom thanked them for the efforts they have put in to improve on there home and advised them to have other facilities as well in there home. In 5homes, they found when the residents had roofed there Latrines and Tom was advising them on standardization as well as improvements. There were also new hand washing stands constructed with jericans as well.
