Alex went back to Butabira to continue with follow up on new sanitation facilities under construction and also continue with hand washing facility construction in the village. There has been more emphasis put on this facility since WASH has decided that the goal this month is to have every home construct a hand washing facility. Also the distribution of hand washing Jerrycans are to be distributed in the village starting next week Monday. WASH decided to give out hand washing Jerrycans to the people that have constructed these stands in their homes in away to promote washing hands. The sanitation committee members led by the village chairman Buyinza Patrick have seriously embarked on helping/ guiding the village construct these hand washing stands. Alex together with the sanitation committee completed visiting the remaining homes in the lower section and realized a great sanitation and hygiene improvements. Some women had done well to smear their facilities and 7 pit latrines had been smeared. Simon one of the people in the village had just completed working on his new pit latrine and was encouraged by Alex to roof it quickly before it starts to rain so hard and damage the new wall. The other second part that needs more effort is to encourage the people that have open pits to quickly construct on them before it starts to rain that can cause these pits to collapse. However the biggest challenge is to get the required logs to put on these pits before constructing on them. The WASH team will continue with follow ups in this village and prepare the village for a second baseline survey at the end of the month.
