To follow up on households still working on sanita
Alex together with Eric one of the visitors from Tulsa were in Kisiro and met with seven village leaders first before visiting the households that were working. Alex first shared with the village about the village current sanitation status and the remaining households that have to be encouraged more to improve. The current pit latrine coverage is at 95% and a few households about 17 are remaining to improve. Together with the leaders they moved in the section of Kisiro North to visit the homes that were working and encourage on facility management. There were two new pit latrines that were seen under construction and also visited the swamp where most of the people from this section get water for home usage. This is the third swamp where people in Kisiro get water for home consumption. Alex has visited two of the swamps and this was the first time to check out the third section where people get water. The village leaders have been encouraged to continue following up on those specific households that have not yet completed their facilities. A decision has already been taken that this village needs two boreholes because of the great water stress and people walking long distances. However WASH staff will keep on encouraging the remaining households to improve also. This village has taken along time because the geographical challenges of the village and pit latrines sinking whenever it rains in the village. The village residents have been highly to always replace which majority have done whenever it rains.
