Abraham and Henry met thirty Bukoma C members and the purpose of the meeting was to discuss how they will register the group at the district.
They found the members working on one of the members house, plastering the walls and cementing the flow of the house to eliminate Jiggers.
They went around with the chairman checking the homes they have worked as a group helping them finish the roofs of their houses,building new latrines for the members and plastering walls. This is done when a member brings his or hers request to the group which is the real need in his or her home.
They are now working on the tenths home in their group, houses are looking new and new latrines are being built.
It is amazing to see that someone can contribute money, give in his or her time then labor for his neighbor.
Henry participated in mixing sand and cement and then they had a meeting where Henry thanked the members for coming up with this idea which is not seen in other villages. He asked the members how they came up with this idea of plastering houses, cementing the flows and building new latrines and one member said he dreamed about it and in the morning he told his fellow members who bought the idea. He said that when Abraham asked them what they can do as a group together that is when God spoke to him in a dream and it was something they can do and they are doing it with happiness.
They want to it for all the seventy members and even those who will be joining the group in future in fact when we were checking homes one of the community member told the chairman that she wants to join the group. They are going to follow up with the district and see if they can their certificate as a group.
