Notes
Topic: Community meeting . Background: As the community wishes to flourish economically, prior to the visit Abraham advised the members to think of what they can do as a community to uplift their level of income so Abraham, Chris and Alex visited them to discuss about what the community members had decided to do together. Overview: Abraham, Chris and Alex visited Kivule community members to discuss about what they had decided to do and we took them some trees to replace those which had died. the chairperson welcomed us and thanked Abraham for sacrificing to visit them. The chairperson stated that it was difficult for him to get registration certificate because their sub county is new so the offices are not functioning but he was advised to go to the old sub county offices and see if he can get the certificate. The chairperson said as a community, they had decided to set up piggery project but they were not so sure how this will be done because some members wanted each one to rear his or hers while other members were like they wanted it to be a community project. The chairperson advised the members not to expect to start big but to start with two or three pigs and see how it will progress, he said this will help to prepare them for something bigger than that. Chris advised those that took the trees to irrigate them during drought and not just wait for the rain to fall. Abraham concluded by advising the members to cooperate with each other because they will not achieve their dream When they have divisions among themselves. Abraham also said before the next visit he expects to find the certificate with the chairperson and advised the members to think about the disadvantages and advantages associated with piggery so that everyone knows the challenges they ought to find so that they can be prepared. 

Next Visit: 2019-09-30 - Purpose: To have final discussion about what the community has decided to do.
