Enock first drove to the sub-county to meet with the sub-county health inspector and the police officer who for long wanted to team up with him to also walk around the village of Buyange to check on the progress of hygiene and sanitation as well as monitoring, encouraging the residents of this village to have proper standard facilities. They went all together and met with the LC1 and the two active VHTs to walk around the trading centre and also the homes near the chairman’s area. In the trading center, most of the people have constructed good standard facilities with bricks, cement and sand. The people who are not renting in the trading centre have good dish racks but the most challenging part is the people who are renting, they say they will be leaving these houses soon though they have some dish racks which they move in and out side. These people were encouraged if they can to make some strong ones outside because they are still around for some good time in this area not moving away time soon as they say. The section near the chairman has greatly improved and there are many new latrines, dish racks, rubbish pits, kitchen areas, shower areas with soak pits for proper drainage of the water from the shower room. Kibo staff is now concentrating on the use of Ash and also use of hand washing facilities in homes. They were taught by Kibo group how to construct easy hand washing facilities which are efficient and easy to maintain. The police officer encouraged people not to always run away but to work hard to improve on the sanitation and hygiene of the village. This will reduce the quick spread of diseases like diarrhea and cholera .
