Ws Notes
David and Steven were in Bupuluka . And their intentions of going there was to assess the status of the borehole they had repaired some month back. The borehole had some issues with it’s water flow because it had reduced. Therefore the Kibo staff by the time they were in the village some two month way back they had a borehole general community meeting. That meeting was aimed at how the village would sustainably own their borehole.Since the borehole cylinder had some issues with its working conditions.However the Kibo staff paid an abrupt visit to the village. But fortunately the Kibo staff along with milia the chairman of the borehole they checked the status of the borehole but it was working so good . Another thing David and Steven noted at the borehole was that the status of the sock-pit and borehole fence were good . But more importantly milia the chairman of the borehole told David and Steven that the people they had understood the criteria of borehole contributions . Therefore the member s were even contributing their borehole contributions by taking it at Milia,s home . Milia said that they had 367000 as their borehole account balance. Hence milia continued and said that they were still contributing. The Kibo staff liked that idea and therefore they advised the village through Milia to continue working together and on the other hand not forgetting the the safe water chain for their own entire good life stay. In general according to the hygiene and sanitation status of the entire village was good . Except for some homes which had some need for improvements on their sanitation facilities.
