Martin went to Mpumiro, he walked around the village with the Chairman LC1 and the sanitation committee members. Their intention was to check on the improvement of the hand washing stands, dish racks as well as promoting the new model of dish rack. But good enough the big number of homes have worked on their hand washing stands and others are still working on them. And when the group was walking around that village, Muhammad Muyinda one of the sanitation committee member, he was busy plastering those hand washing stands, which was constructed by the chairman LC1 of that village. The reason why the chairman and one of the sanitation committee member decided to help the community members to construct the hand washing stands them, because when kibo was demonstrating to them how they are going to construct the hand washing stands before Covid 19, the Chairman LC1 to that village was in that meeting, and he learned so faster how to construct them. So the chairman is constructing to residents for free and Muhammad Muyinda, he is also plastering to them for free. When Martin asked them that, what’s forcing you to help them to construct to them the hand washing stands. They told him that, in the government policy, the village leaders are the ones supposed to encourage the residents about the home facilities. So that’s why they decided to help them, and to increase the speed, because it’s their work. On the side of dish racks, Martin and the group was promoting, how they are going to construct the new model of dish racks. Because of their hard working, they are willing to work on their sanitation facilities, without force. As kibo is still working in that community as well as the village, the group walked in 30homes.
