Alex with the sanitation committee members moved to those specific homes that had been lagging behind in pit latrine construction. They moved in the sections of Isamba and Kisiro north. On a good note, they saw great improvements in these sections of the village. Ben Wamutawa finally completed his pit latrine, Badagawa Mohammed is working on a new pit latrine after the old one sunk in due to the heavy rains that poured three days ago. On a sad note, three pit latrines sunk in when it rained and this is a big challenge to this community. However, they were encouraged to start on new ones. The biggest challenge in Kisiro is pit latrines collapsing whenever it rains because of the soft sandy soils that sink in whenever it rains. It’s however very good that most people are able to replace their pit latrines that collapse. WASH will plan to update these homes in the third evaluation and decide on a way forward after a full month of intensive follow up in the village. 

Next Visit: 2020-08-02 - Purpose: Update the homes into the third survey evaluation
