Notes
Topic: Community meeting. Background: Kiteigalwa is one of the villages Kibo has worked so hard to improve. The results are overwhelming and it was so important for Kibo staff and visitors to go there and meet with the community members. Overview: Abraham, Kibo staff and visitors embarked on a trip to Kiteigalwa village, it was exciting and we were in full anticipation. The chairperson welcomed us and led us for a community tour, we visited a mosque for Shias, the Imam of the mosque thanked Kibo for bringing unity in diversity it the community. The Imam also thanked Kibo for proving that indeed everything is possible when we all unit and they have seen that with their own eyes. The Imam also thanked Abraham for providing them with goats and Mvule tree seedlings which are growing up well. The chairperson invited us to see the community project of building a community health center and said the community has so far contributed two (2)million Uganda shillings but more is needed to complete the project. We also visited the community church with its leadership and also reiterated the need of chairs for church, then lastly we visited the Sunni ‘s mosque, the Imam, Mr Bashir thanked Kibo for the great love they have for their community, he said by Kibo entering their mosque was a sign of love and spirit of togetherness, the Imam invited us to his home since he had just lost one of his daughters, at the funeral, the chairperson thanked Kibo for pay homage to Imam’s home,he said it was a great gesture since Kibo practices love and community unity. As we were winding up the day the community leaders invited Kibo staff and the visitors for a special feast, Abraham encouraged them to be productive and reminded the chairperson to mobilize community members to contribute towards the construction of community health center and said he will visit them to monitor how the goat project and Mvule trees are getting on. In conclusion, it was great to see people of different ethnicities and religions working together and all this was because of Kibo.
