David and Steven were in igerera. They had gone to teach the water user committee members about their full roles and the responsibilities towards their borehole. As they were in village they found when the committee members had gathered waiting for them at mr kamya Charles,s home . However the chairman of the committee requested the Kibo staff before the meeting to move around because he wanted them to see how the work of smearing which was initiated by Tape was progressing . They visited about 20 homes which had smeared their kitchens in the preparations for the next stoves making . They were impressed with the work of smearing which was done by the members and for that matter they even asked the chairman how was that possible for the entire village. Mr kamya Charles answered and said that they had divided the community into five groups and each group with its leader. For the smooth ran of the smearing work. From the Kibo,s home to home movements,as they were heading for where the meeting was to be they came across an old man by the names Wilson .mutumba . He impressed the Kibo staff so much by testifying before them saying that thanks to the Kibo because for the rest of his entire life he had never seen his daughters staying together while working. They started their meeting by teaching the committee members about the full ownership of their borehole. They said that it won’t be the Kibo always to take the lead towards the good care of the well. The members were also advised to continue contributing money towards their borehole account in order to be ready for any future brokerages. They were encouraged to practice and maintain the safe water chain always . Later on the chairman of the village told the Kibo staff that they will be phone calling them when the village gets to finish the construction work of their brick wall fence. In general according to the hygiene and sanitation status of the entire village was good. Except for the homes which had the need for the smearing .
