To check on homes that dd not have facilities
Tom made a visit to budumba village to check on ho,es that did not have latrines by the third evaluation and update any changes since the third evaluation was conducted in the database.
When he arrived in the village, he found the chairman and the vht Edson waiting at the chairman place after Tom contacted them about his visit. They shared with him about the status of the village as regards sanitation and hygiene as well as other programs like stoves.
For the homes that were in the list with no latrimes, Tom found two who had constructed and others still not finished. Tom asked why the others had not done and the chairman said that some of the men in those homes are never in their homes and that others still share with there neighbors on a mutual understanding. Tom visited the homes and found also a new resident who just moved to the village constructing a new latrimes for his home. He also has a stove in his kitchen and Tom thanked the resident for improving his home. His wife was also thankful and said she welcomed the stove program in her home with open arms after realizing the value of stoves. After moving around, Tom came back to the meeting place with the chairman to discuss a way forward for the village. During the discussion, the vht also noted that there were also some homes that had lost there latrines during the rains but that most of them had started digging. Tom encouraged him to continue visiting the homes of those residents and encouraged and guide them about facility standards and construction methods.
After the chairman said he will also call a general meeting with the village to discuss about how to maintain the sanitation as well as how to get the rest of the residents to finish there latrimes. The chairman said he will communicate the results of the meeting.
