Martin and Steven went to lgerera A, they walked around with the Chairman LC1 and the sanitation committee members in the lower section of the village. Good enough even if the community members are still in the lockdown, they have worked so hard on their sanitation facilities like latrines, shower areas. Kitchens etc. But the only problems is that those facilities are not on a good standards. So they need more encouragement about the standards and maintenance. And the kibo staff started encouraging them about those things, especially hand washing, because every village kibo staff goes, the village leaders and the community members are welcoming them because of the good work of hand washing stand which was going on in their villages before Covid 19. Because when the Government started announcing how people can prevent Covid 19, the fast method was to wash hands. They said that lesson of washing hands helped them in this lockdown, because it was not new to them. And group was also encouraging the community members to work hard on other facilities on a good standards and to maintain, to make them strong and to stay for a long time. According to what is going on in that Village, the community members are willing to work on their sanitation facilities. And kibo also is willing to work with that village.
