This was the first visit to Busene as WASH plans to start working in this new village. This village is among those that applied to Kibo group to have their borehole repaired. Alex met with the village leader Mr. Basalirwa Paul to inquire if anything had changed since they last applied to kibo group for help. Alex found out that the village has an estimated number of 100 households with about 700 people. This visit was to make sure that all what had been reported was still the same before Kibo could start working here. The village chairman was happy to hear that Kibo would start to work in their village and he was indeed very welcoming and promised to cooperate with Kibo group. Another meeting Would be scheduled to meet all the village leaders including the Vhts to discuss details of what needs to be done and plan for a baseline survey date and triggering in open defecation. The village chairman confessed that he has never got a chance of any NGO working in his village for the years he has been a leader and he surely promised to do whatever it takes to engage his village when kibo group starts its work. Alex visited the borehole and found it still in bad shape and needs borehole repair as it keeps breaking down many times. WASH plans to fully start working in this village this month of October encouraging the village to improve their sanitation and hygiene standards standards first before their broken well can be tackled.
