Notes
Abraham met forty Kishaike community member and the discussed things required to keep goats, they saw that there is a need of kitchens because some members do not have. Abraham advised them to make sure they do not live with the animals in the same house or shelter because that brings like Jiggers. He encouraged them that for those without goat shelters and have no where to keep their goats but in the kitchens, should ensure that they are kept clean and have doors at the kitchens because if someone is thinking of taking the animal may be a thief it will be hard for him to reach the goat but if it is open then someone can just pick it and go. Some women said they have been telling their husbands and they have not taken it serious, they said they are going to start working together so that they can have the kitchens because this helps them very much to keep some things there not in the house they live in. Each one has to look at his or her kitchen and see if it meets the standards which they set by themselves. They said they are going to work all January and by February they will be done.
