Other Committee Notes
The committee have been active to ensure the borehole functionality and encourage the village residents to maintain their sanitation and hygiene standards 
Ws Notes
The borehole needs new bearings and rubber buckets. It was observed that water flow had reduced and the handle not being in a fixed position as required. Alex talked to the water user committee care taker and secretary to meet as a committee and plan to buy new bearings and pump buckets for their well. Also they moved in some homes checking on the sanitation facility standards and realized most of the facilities have become old already and need to build new ones. The village leaders have a plan in place to encourage people to maintain their facilities during community gatherings and funerals. However Alex told the leaders and sanitation committee to keep telling people to maintain their hygiene and sanitation facilities and construct new facilities when they get old. Many of the homes have maintained their pit latrines and need to work on the roofing part of it. The water user committee will be followed up to make sure they fix the borehole.
