Notes
David and Steven were in Ndhalike village. And their intentions of going there was to follow up on the hand washing construction improvements around the entire village. As David and Steven were in the village they were joined by mugote Stephen who is one of the most active member in the village. He led them into the different homes around the entire village . Out of the different home they visited to they were so much encouraged by Namuwaya Pelusi who used to be the most stubborn and complicated member around the village. Because even when other organizations like plan international were in the village they were defeated getting her improved. However it was total joy for David and Steven finding her when she had started improving on her latrine shelter and the roof structure. Because even she had bought the new iron sheets in place . Therefore because she was out of her home and David and Steven found her in the trading centre. Instead she was on bended knees thanking kibo for their several wards of advise and encouragements. On that same note David thanked her also for using stronger construction materials when improving on her latrine for example iron bars and the concrete stones and cement which she had used because they were going to serve namuwaya pelusi sustainably for a longer period of time . David and Steven they also reminded namuwaya pelusi to plaster her hand washing stand because it wasn’t plastered hence protecting it from the on the on going rains . When David and Steven continued moving, they came across wandela Godfrey who was trying to construct his shower area . But unfortunately he didn’t know how to construct it rightly. Because the wall he had already started constructing were not straight and stronger enough. Therefore the kibo staff advised wandela Godfrey to use mugote, Stephen one of the Sanitation committee members who knew best about the brick work construction . He therefore stopped the construction work he had started which was almost a-half way. So Wandela Godfrey said that he was to consult mr mugote Stephen when constructing again. Also as the kibo staff continued moving around the entire village,they noted that almost the entire village had constructed their hand washing stations but the only challenge was that some of them were not plastered using cement Therefore on that point the kibo as they were moving home to home they were also encouraging those with hand washing stands which were not plastered to plaster them. Which could cause the longer effects of strength and the sustainability . Later after David and Steven, home to home movements, they saw that there was need for planning to give whoever had finished constructing and plastering his or her hand washing stand ajellycan from the kibo office to use as away of promoting the idea of hand washing in the entire village. However they left an assignment with the sanitation committee of noting whoever will have finished the construction of his or her hand washing stand. Such that during the next village visit David and Steven they will be moving around the entire village monitoring following up the village register of whoever will have completed the plastering of his or hand washing station. In general according to David and Steven,s overview,this is what they noted . They saw much greater sanitation changes and the improvements in quite a lot of different homes than before. Therefore they hope to be in position to meet their monthly set goal for the construction of the hand washing stands in the village.
