Alex had a water and sanitation committee meeting to continue with the preparations of the village before the borehole survey and drilling process as well as continue encouraging the village to maintain their hygiene and sanitation standards. The water committee members reported to Alex that the village was responding positively contributing money towards the borehole. The village met together two weeks ago and agreed that every household would contribute 5000/= to help towards the whole process of borehole survey and drilling. Many of the homes have started paying to the committee members and expect that by next week half of the village homes will have fully paid the 5000/=. Alex was very happy that water committee has remained committed to move home to home collecting this money needed during this process. That money part of it helps to feed the workers and will help in other steps to follow after the borehole construction.
Alex encouraged the village leaders and the water committee to continue working together to achieve the goal they want. The village people kept gathering at the meeting place to thank Alex and kibo group for the new borehole to be drilled soon in their village. The village still have struggles to follow the ministry of health guidelines towards Covid-19 prevention like keeping social distance and wearing of masks. They still think that there is corona virus in their village, Alex has continued to encourage the people to take these measures serious in their village because no one knows where the virus is. However most of the people continue to wash their hands using the hand washing facilities taught by WASH in this village.
The water committee together with the village leaders were told by Alex to meet together and agree on the areas in the villages to be considered by the surveyor during the water survey in the village. Alex plans to go back on 20/07/2020 to continue preparing the village before the water survey. He will visit the sites selected by the village to be considered by the water surveyor during the water survey process however Alex told the village leaders and the water committee that the core thing during this process is unity and togetherness of the village. There should be no selfish ambitions and fighting for where the borehole is to be drilled. We all have to rely on the water survey report.
