Notes
Martin and Enock went to Igerera B, check on the sanitation and hygiene improvement. They walked around with the Chairman LC1 and the VHTs in the upper section of the village. When they were walking around that area, they were so encouraged to see that there some homes who are busy digging their new pit latrines like Munyilwa Mugoya. And some homes were constructing them like Dolotia Isabirye’s grandson a student dug for her a new pit latrine 25ft deep and it’s under construction with his son, Patrick Kyemele also dug his new pit latrine 30ft deep it’s under construction. The group were guiding them about standards, maintenance, smearing and the use of ash to eliminate flies and smell which can spread some diseases like malaria, Typhoid etc. The community members have not been able to work on their hand washing facilities, because they told the group that they wanted to finish their latrines before they work on them. Martin and Enock were so happy to hear from the Chairman LC1 that, he is going to organize committee members to walk around that section, encouraging the community members about the hand washing facilities. According to their hard working, kibo is also willing to work with them ant-ill they will complete their sanitation facilities. Martin, Enock and the group walked in 46homes. 

Next Visit: 2019-07-10 - Purpose: To follow up on hand washing facilities.
