Checking on construction of hand washinf stands.
Tom was meant to take jericans to the village but was not able and instead went to check on improvements in hand washing stand construction as well as,check on those homes still constructing there latrines and other facilities.
When he arrived in the village, he was welcomed by the chairman and three committee members in the upper section.
They were also moving around and checking on hand washing stands and updating the list of those residents who have constructed the hand washing stands.
Tom joined them and from the upper section toward the lower section, they observed new hand washing stands that had recently been constructed. Tom encouraged the resident about cementing the hand washing stands as its the only way they can stay longer. Tom,and the committee members also observed that some residents had already started using the hand washing stands by putting their own jericans. One resident said he was not waiting for jericans because he feels it’s greatly important to wash hands. Tom also encouraged many to use there personal jericans if they can. Tom also encouraged residents about the meeting and as they moved together with the chairman and the committee members, they kept reminding the residents about the coming meeting and the distribution of jericans. After moving in the homes from the upper section towards the lower, The chairman and the committee members shared with Tom the list of residents who had constructed the hand washing stands and Tom was very impressed and happy. Tom encouraged the chairman to continue moving and mobilizing residents for the next meeting.
