- Tom and Henry madema visit to igerera B village to check and follow up on sanitation and hygiene improvements.
When they reached the village, they first met the chairman and had a short meeting about the village as regards sanitation and hygiene. After sharing about the village, the chairman suggested that they move around and started moving around the village checking on hand washing, latrines, dish racks as well as other sanitation facilities.
In the first homes visited, they all had hand washing jericans as well as stations and each person had the hand washing stand.
As they moved, they witnessed that most residents were using soap especially those that had cemented their hand washing stations. They also encouraged residents especially those that had not yet put cement on their hand washing stations to do so. This is because the cement makes the hand washing stations stronger and long lasting.
They also encouraged residents about dish racks and the use of as.
There was a resident also that was very impressive with the creativity in his home. He had constructed a good hand washing facility as well as a pig structure. He also had interesting structures like the toy airplane in his home.
Tom also encouraged the chairman to continue encouraging residents about the construction of the borehole wall and he said they had started collecting money for bricks. The movement around the village was cut short by rain and Tom and Henry had to leave for jinja.
Next Visit: 2019-09-18 - Purpose: To take visitors to see Kibo’s work in the village.
