Lesson Taught
Enock and Martin went to this community purposely to meet with the community members and teach the how to construct a good standard dish rack which takes a few nails and is strong. As they reached the community, they met the chairman and VHTs waiting for them at the meeting areas. We asked the chairman and VHTs if they had mobilized the residents to come for the meeting, they responded yes. We waited for about an hour to start the meeting but before the start the chairman and the kibo wash team walked around a few home to monitor and evaluate the progress of the sanitation program. They saw some newly constructed latrines, shower areas, rubbish pits and hand washing stations. This showed that there is some good response and improvement going on. We came back and the chairman open the meeting to welcomed Enock and Martin to take the lead. They first had a word of prayer, after asked question who know the importance of a dish rack, why is it important to construct or have one, why is it important to place it under open space under sun light. Many people gave us different answers as we guided them on the core importance and values of a dish rack. Many people have seen a dish rack and have constructed one before but few people knew how to construct a strong and good standard dish rack. We taught them and demonstrated how to construct it. The community members liked the new idea and skill, they promised to take the lead and also teach the rest of their residents who didn’t attend the meeting.
