Ws Notes
David and Steven went to naibowa village their intention of going there was to asses the sanitation standards of the entire village and also noting the distance moved by the residents from their homes to where they get water for their home use. They were able to move the entire village home to home but as they were moving, they noted that there was some little sanitation improvement in some of the homes .For example they were able to see facilities like new pits,new dish racks,and some new smeared houses and kitchens. The Kibo staff kept on encouraging the residents of the area they came across to work hard and Improve on their sanitation standards according to how they were left by the time Kibo repaired their borehole. The committee members together with David and Steven moved to the the borehole Kibo repaired about eight month back but the status of the borehole and the soak pit were not good because even the fence was torn apart and the soak pit was bushy. They Said they had-reserved the water Kibo repaired for the members who had animals because that water is salty which is good and rich in calcium especially for grazing animals. They then proceeded to the other borehole said to be having good water and they moved a distance of about 4 kilometers before reaching that other borehole also the status of the other borehole where they were getting water wasn’t also good. They continued encouraging the people they found at that borehole to take full ownership and responsibility of that borehole and continuing to contribute for both boreholes. They continued encouraging the people during their way back from the borehole to maintain their good hygiene and sanitation. Kibo members also visited one member who was too stubborn mr tigawalana david,s home assessing if there was any sanitation improvement. They were able to get him and talked to him about improving on his toilet depth because he was using a five feet pit about to get filled up. mr tigawalana agreed to dig a latrine in one week without fail.lastly in the meeting place,they all agreed that there was a set back in their sanitation standards and decided to have a-general sanitation village improvement and borehole contribution meeting scheduled Saturday to find possible solutions to their hygiene and sanitation improvement.
