Ws Notes
David and Steven went to nawampiti village to continue encouraging the community members to work and improve on their hygiene standards . Their focus was on the homes that were along the border of nawampiti and kivule which the government recently added to nawampiti because they-also wanted those homes to improve like the other homes by working and improving hence meeting the required set hygiene standards.They visited those few homes there but their sanitation status was lacking therefore,a great need for the owners to work on improving on some of the facilities in each home.In mr yasoni wanyanja,s home he had started digging on his pit latrine which is about 13feet. He said however much he was new from the islands where he had over stayed for about 10 year he was back and he sees a greater need for himself having a good pit latrine of about 25feet and above .He continued and told David that where he used to stay at kiyindi landing site they used not to have a-toilet instead they used to go on the hill side near the lake. Mr yasoni thanked David for being patient with him and encouraging him about his home sanitation status because he used to hear from the radio government leaders imprisoning people. The other seven homes were also in a bad condition but the great challenge was that the owners like the men them selves were out of their homes and in their gardens but David and Steven kept on encouraging the women who were present to communicate to their husbands. After visiting those homes in the boundary they continued to the chairman LC1s and LC3s homes who were also not having good sanitation facilities. Mr bagise the lc3 of the village had dug about 7 feet he said he had dug those few feet reason being he found a hard rock along his pit. He requested David to give him more two weeks as other facilities were in place and in-good condition. In the LC1 villages home,they found when he was seriously sick. They wanted to monitor his progress in his home. The shower area and the dish rack were not in good condition but instead they prayed about his sickness and wished him a good quick recovery. Generally as far as hygiene and sanitation are concerned are in theri upper 80's,the members have tried improving and maintaining on some of their hygiene facilities except for the case of some few homes especially those new ones the government has just added.They ended their field day by encouraging the rest of the community members to pay towards their borehole account and also continue working together .
