community meeting 
Abraham and Chris met thirty Bukhudumira community members, The meeting was led by the chairman who started by thanking the members for sacrificing their time to attend the meeting. He informed the members where they have reached towards opening the group account and said he did not find the CDO in office but promised to go back on 16th (Wednesday) to get the letter from the CDO to take it to the bank. The chairman thanked the members for being cooperative in all Kibo programs and also encouraged them to not give up until they reach where Kibo wants them to be. The chairman reported to Abraham about the progress of trees Kibo supplied, he said at that time there was a long drought so some trees did not make it , he said they made an effort to replace them with their own and requested Kibo to supply them with more trees to replace those that did not make it. The chairman requested Abraham to address the meeting, Abraham started by thanking the members for having attended the meeting and also cautioned them about the importance of planting trees and why they should replace the cut ones. Abraham talked about the benefits of working together as a community and why working together as a community is a core benefit of their community. Abraham requested the chairperson to get the letter from the CDO and open the group bank Account before the next visit. Towards the end of the meeting, Abraham and chris gave the members a chance to ask questions if they had any, the members had no questions except a one member who complained about a new kind of weed that was eating up their gardens.Abraham concluded by encouraging the members to work together and have good relationship with their neighbors. 

Next Visit: 2019-07-30 - Purpose: The purpose of the next visit is to engage with the community members and discuss what project to do because they have tried several projects in the past like growing beans and cabbages but they have been unsuccessful due to long droughts but this time around we would like to discuss and find out what the community can do best.
