David and Steven were in kirwanire village . And their intentions of going there was to move home to home along with the sanitation committee members encouraging the homes which were still lagging behind to work hard and get improved. As David and Steven were in the village they were joined by some of the sanitation committee members and the village chairman Bogere Hasani who led them into the different homes. They were monitoring the sanitation work progress as well as encouraging the homes still lagging behind to work hard putting into consideration about their set deadline dates as agreed by the the kibo staff and the health assistant. However out of the different homes they visited during the home to home movements this is what was noted . There was greater much more sanitation improvements in some of the complicated homes . For example in the following homes . Bakuza George his pit was about 35 feet deeper and had plans of constructing two rooms one for himself and the other room for his elder son, kizibu Eriot was almost completing the digging of his rubbish pit, Kyate Fred also he had dug his rubbish pit and it was almost getting done . So because of the good improvements in the homes of the most complicated members, David and Steven were forced to invite Kalulu Magidu one of the most complicated members to came and watch so that he would learn from the different community members who had worked and improved . On that note David and Steven were some how impressed to hear it from kalulu Magidu. A complicated man with two homes but both of the two homes dint have the necessary sanitation facilities in place . But he was confessing that from the lesson he learnt from the other neighbors, he was going to work hard so that he gets to improve. Because of the too much rains David and Steven were forced to end up with their home to home movements and they left for jinja . In general according to David and Steven,s overview they saw that there was greater much sanitation work progress.
