Ws Notes
David and Steven were in the village . Their intentions of going there was to check if at all the work of the borehole fence construction was completed as well as having a village general meeting which was aimed at continuing encouraging everyone to pay money towards the borehole account. However when the Kibo staff reached the village,they were joined by mr kukuta David who is one of the members on the water and sanitation committee to were the borehole was. At the borehole the Kibo staff were so much happy and encouraged to find that the village had already completed the task which previously they had left with them. On that note David thanked mr Kukuta David along with the other four members on the water users committee who had joined them at the borehole promise. David thanked the member at the borehole for taking the lead towards the work of the fence construction. He continued and advised them to always continuing contributing more money towards their borehole account as away of maintaining the future sustainability of the borehole. The members who were at the borehole compound told the Kibo staff that they had-previously 100000 shillings before they got to reduct on the money they had used during the work of fencing the borehole. Therefore currently the village had 80000 shillings. However after all that had happened, the Kibo staff along with the members at the borehole started moving to the place where the meeting was supposed to be. Unfortunately before they reached where the meeting was to take place,the stronger rains started and took a lot of time which they would have used during the meeting. Therefore they planned for a another village village when everyone in the village will be around.In general according to the hygiene and sanitation status of the village was good.Except for some of the home which reminded to improve on their sanitation standards.
