David and Steven were in kirwanire. And their intentions of going there was to continue encouraging the homes to work hard and improve so that everyone in the village will be able to meet the required sanitation standards. As David and Steven were in the village they first moved with the parish councilor mufumbiro Gerald and the the V h t mukisa Hasani from the lower section throughout the upper section. Out of the home to home movements they made this is what was noted , A lot of sanitation facilities were destroyed by the on going rains in the different peoples homes . For example the shower areas and the latrines which were made by the use of mud instead of cement.Therefore that is why David and Steven they changed the home to home approach for that day by encouraging the affected homes to use better construction materials not to repeat the same mistake during the construction they had made. As they continued moving home to home they saw that the rains had caused the village and kibo a great set back. So they decided to involve the government officials so that they would pattern with the kibo to kind of speed up the sanitation work progress . As they reached the chairman’s home while still moving home to home Hasani Bogere they sat under a tree and they thought of how they would bring on board every one such that they would work and get improved. On that not as they were still at the chairman’s home this is what was discussed . The village chairman Hasani Bogere and Gerald mufumbiro the parish councilor they requested on the behalf of the entire village that let David and Steven involve the government . By so doing to involve the healthy assistant mr Busense . The village requested of the involvement of the governmental officials for example the healthy assistant because there was some complicated members who never wanted to work as a village at the same speed like the other residents. For them as leaders they felt so concerned for their other neighbors who were still lagging behind yet for them they had progressed well. So David promised the village leader that he will be arranging one field visit to by pass the sub county . With the aims of involving mr Busense the healthy Assistant as away of speeding up the sanitation work progress and letting everyone in the village as far as the good sanitation improvements were concerned. In general according to David and Steven,s overview they saw that many residents they had improved . But the only challenge was to do with the on going rains which were causing a lot damage to some peoples home facilities.
