Kigalama - kigalama kibo 
David and Steven went to kigalama village to follow on the borehole status ,account,as well as assessing the hygiene standard of some homes next to the borehole. They went first to the borehole before having a committee meeting.In the meeting kibo,s emphasis was to stress much more about full borehole ownership and good care of their borehole. The committee members were asked by Kibo staff what were the problems they were facing as borehole and sanitation committee members. One of the members mr batusa mohamed the chairman of the borehole said all the boreholes were down except the one for Kibo which was serving about one thousand people because the rest were down not working. The second member by names of miss nakisita Mariam the caretaker of the borehole said fellow ladies who were new entrants who cross boarders from their village to their borehole who were not there by the time Kibo staff enacted borehole bye laws. The third member mr naminya mawazi the assistant caretaker said that the challenge he was facing and realising was the great number of youth who hung out with peoples young daughters at the borehole. The last member mr mwanje the village chairman said new neighbours who were getting the water from their borehole when they had not paid their contributions towards their borehole account. They reacted on the above mentioned problems by proposing a community general meeting in order to eradicate the bad use of their borehole. kibo staff during the course of the meeting talked so much about every one taking part in the full ownership of the borehole and also continuing to encourage everyone to take a lead in the community borehole contributions as well as improving on their hygiene standards.David asked them how much they have on their account and they said 150000 shillings they were advised to be knowing what they would be doing to those who were using their borehole without paying their contributions. They moved together with the committee members in about twenty homes assessing the sanitation status the challenge noted was that some dish racks were old and in some homes there was need for them to build new ones. Kibo staff thanked the committee for the maintenance of their borehole fence and the cleanliness of the people’s jerrycans at the borehole and in different community members homes. Kibo staff also thanked water missions for the training of v.h.t,s of kigalama about borehole full ownership. Water Missions is anon governmental organisation partnering with the namutumba district, to encourage different communities to construct strong and good borehole fences .Generally the hygiene and sanitation percentage of the different homes in kigalama village is at eighty and above, the dish racks being the greatest challenge because most of them were old and not well maintained.
