community meeting 
When Alex B arrived at Bukudumira and did not find any one at the meeting place. The chairperson Margaret Waiswa came after and she told Alex B that most of the community had gone to attend parent meeting at Budali Islamic primary school. She told him they expected the school meeting to begin at 10:00 Am to 12:30pm. Alex B and Kigoolo Swaibu decided to go where they demonstration group garden project is located .This was done as they wait for the members to come back from the school meeting. They had also planned to finish up ploughing as soon as they come back from the meeting.They are ready with money to buy the peas seeds which they will plant in their group garden.The land for the project was provided by Kigoolo Swaibu who is one of the members. Alex B and the two members who were present waited for the members to turn up for the meeting until it was a haft past two o’clock. He asked Kigoolo Swaibu to find out with those that attended the school meeting and see whether the school meeting was soon ending.It was found out that,meeting was still going on , and the time for it to end was not known . He decided to leave and on his way he met one of the member of the group Frank whose children are in Nawaikona primary school.He was organizing bricks ready for burning.It was interesting to see one of his children working together with him to raise money for the family.He said money got from the bricks will be for school fees and also to help in home needs. Alex B advised him to set some money aside after selling to help him pay other people for labour in order to increase on the number of bricks produced thus increase on his family income. After talking to Frank,Alex B left for Jinja.
