Mvule Community Development 
Lesson Taught
how to plant 
Abraham, Chris and Diana met seventeen Kazimbakujira community members and the purpose was to demonstrate how to plant Mvule trees and they got some few for demonstrating. Abraham asked the members where they can do demonstrations and all of the members said that it is good to do it at the Bukese Baptist primary school and all of the community members headed to the school. We had a meeting with the Headmaster and the staff and the students who welcomed Kibo group staff to their school. The were excited to see the seedings of Mvule because some even they confessed they did not know that Mvule tree can produce seeds and they asked where Kibo is getting the seedings from. Abraham thanked the chairman LC1 Mr John who has made every effort to see that he is organizing the community and the school administration for this great work of planting trees. He told them the slogan in Busoga Region which says Jamerejene which means they grew by themselves and that statement Kibo is changing into to Tijamerajene which means they did not grew by themselves but now we are planting them to replace those we have been cutting without replacements. The Headmaster together with his staff and the children led the all group to the site where they wanted to plant the Mvule trees. They planted two trees while all were looking and get some trees so that they can also plant and the planted according to the directives from Kibo staff and now they are ready to plant the rest when Kibo will take them for the all community.
