During this visit to Igerera B, the village chairman continues to thank kibo group for giving him courage to stand and help him uplift his village. He confessed that his village is now considered to be a model village in the whole of the parish with the highest sanitation grade. Many village leaders surrounding his village come to him for advise and ask him how he got connected to Kibo group. He has gone ahead to share with them what he has been doing with kibo group in his village to be able to attain this status. He told them that they need to be very committed and strong to help their villages. Charles encouraged his village to come together to contribute money to buy materials for the borehole wall fence. The village constructed one of its kind in the whole sub county if which everyone admires and asks them how they did it and share with them all the details. Alex met with two water user committee members for the upper old borehole in the voltage together with the chairman to discuss on a way forward to have this borehole repaired and maintained also. This borehole when fully repaired, will help to reduce pressure on the new borehole recently drilled by kibo. It currently needs a new head assembly and new cylinder. Also borehole wall fence is needed and the village people want it to look like the the new borehole. However the challenge right now is that the village is crying to be very poor and can’t afford all that is required. Alex continued to encourage the village leader and the water user committee to sit together and meet the water users to see what can be raised before Kibo group can come in. However it’s very important to get this borehole fixed to reduce pressure on the new borehole recently drilled by Kibo group as this old borehole is at the verge of breaking down soon. Alex will continue to keep in touch with the village about what can be contributed as wells as engaging Kibo group country director about a lasting solution on how to get this borehole repaired.
