Ws Notes
David and Steven were in the village and their intentions of going there was to check on the borehole and sanitation status of two homes . The two homes were not meeting the required standards during when the Kibo staff were carrying out the borehole repair. When David and Steven were in the village they were joined by mr kukuta David who lead them into the two homes. They were happy to see that the two homes were busy working on their pit latrines. And one of the two homes was for mr Frasco Isabirye ,he had already finished the construction of the shelter on his latrine pit. The other home was for mr Dauson Mbuga . For him his contribution of his pit was under progress. Because he had already finished the formation of his latrine slab . Dauson Mbuga was only waiting to construct a shelter around his latrine. Later David ,Steven and mr Kukuta David they went to check on the status of the two boreholes. One of the two boreholes was the one the Kibo repaired .Unfortunately for it , it’s status wasn’t properly maintained because the sock pit status was not properly maintained.And the other borehole they visited was the one the Kibo drilled. For it , it well maintained and kept. Therefore the Kibo staff encouraged the water user committee members by reminding them of their roles and responsibilities towards their borehole. They continued and reminded them that its every ones responsibility to take a lead towards the general cleanliness of their sock-pit. Finally they were reminded of always continuing contributing money towards their borehole account. In general according to the hygiene and sanitation status of the entire village was good . Except for the one home which was only left to complete the construction of a shelter around the pit. I
