Alex together with two committee members first moved around the community checking on all home sanitation facilities and their standards as they were waiting for people to gather for a meeting. Alex together with the committee members visited and checked a new kitchen recently constructed by Philip Lubaale. They continued to encourage the community members to maintain their sanitation facilities during this rain season and those whose facilities had started to weaken to also improve on them before they collapse. It’s raining too much recently and the people need to be encouraged to maintain their sanitation facilities at all times. Alex also found Mr. Tatyaise constructing a permanent new pit latrine measuring 40ft. He was working on a slab and he took his time to construct a permanent pit latrine for his family that will replace the old one he has had for quite a while. He thanked kibo group for encouraging him and his family and he was very that he was able to save some money to construct this permanent pit latrine in his home. Alex continued to encourage their village to maintain their sanitation facility standards as well as After moving around the village, Alex came to the meeting and met with some of the community members to continue preparations for the water survey expected this week having received information from the drilling contractor that the hydrogeologist was going to be available for kibo group this week to carry out this water survey in Ndhalike. Alex told the community members that they have to let the surveyor do a good job and not interfere him with selfish ambitions. It’s one well for the village and therefore the village have to work together and remain united. The neutral points selected by the village from Naibi’s land to Takoze’s area in the upper will be considered for water survey by the hydrogeologist but doesn’t mean necessarily that it’s where water is to be got. The hydrogeologist will still look in the rest of the village locations to come up with the most potential site for water drilling. The men need to be willing to help out in this process because it involves carrying heavy tools and use of hammers to hit pegs during the water survey. The village was told that the land owners should be willing to give out land agreement and don’t expect that Kibo group buys a piece of land to drill a well in the community. The water and sanitation committee are closely working together to encourage the rest of the community members to work together during this new borehole survey and drilling. The community has already raised bricks to construct a brick wall around the old borehole and are raising money to buy the materials to build this fence. While in the meeting, the community residents promised to cooperate and are ready for the water survey process in their village. The water survey is expected this week from Wednesday.
