Notes
When Enock reached, he found when the chairman LC1, VHT were waiting for him at the chairman’s home. They met to strategise how to walk in target homes and also empower those who are slow to speed up to complete all the facilities in their homes. Those with latrines to smear, use ash, build a hand washing facility to wash hands after visiting that latrine. There are two new dug pits one is about 6ft and the other is 10ft and the owners promised to complete them in two weeks although, there main challenge is that the ground is too dry and hard to dig. They are pouring water to soften the good so as to continue digging up to 15ft deep. There are many clean compounds and there is proper use of rubbish pits to collect all the trash unlike before in many homes where trash would welcome you in the home( meaning trash is everywhere around the yard). There chairman is so happy because most of the homes in his village have access to Proper latrines and other facilities. There are some ladies who confessed that they now take day showers without any difficulties though before they only waited in the night or even skip showering. During the home to home visit, Enock and the group were also mobilising the residents to come for the meeting next week to still continue encouraging them on lessons concerning proper hygiene and also get solutions for the families that are still struggling to construct latrines. Outside of what Enock had gone to do in his visit in this village, the defence head in charge of security in the village asked to talk to Enock about his son who has refused to go back to complete his school. Te son is in senior 3. He decided to just stop studying and remain home to do farm work and garden work. The father wants him to go back to school, he asked me to talk to him. When Enock reached his home, he called the boy to first create a relationship with him to find out what is the main reason as to why he quit going to school. He said he just wants to play soccer in some local team. Enock told him he can still play soccer and at the same time go to school. The reason was his team trains in the morning. Enock asked him if by any chance he broke his leg will the team support him, he answers no. Enock also went ahead and asked him if the team pays him some money and he answered No. From this conversation, Enock encouraged to go back to school because it’s the best foundation his parents will ever give him. He also told him of a school in iganga who offer scholarship for soccer players to study as well as play soccer for them. He was happy to hear that, he is looking forward to trying that. His father is willing to pay for him school fees.
