Enock and Martin made a visit in this community to check on all the sanitation improvements and emphasize standardization as well as sustainability. They checked on latrines under construction and those that are completed, checked on the new hand washing station, shower areas, kitchen areas, rubbish pit encourage the use of ash as a disinfectant to chase flies out of there latrines since flies carry the germs from latrines to food. During the visit, they teamed up with the chairman and VHT of this village to walk around checking in the sanitation facilities. As they were walking, they saw some new hand washing stand constructed new the mosque and they said everyone has to first wash their hands with soap before entering the mosque. The mosque embraced the new model of hand washing facility taught by the kibo wash team. This showed us how people have embraced the new idea of hand washing stands. As we continued walking around, they also saw a new hand washing station at the school. We met with one of the school teachers who was so happy to see us, expressed his appreciation of the new model of hand washing construction which has greatly helped the school and everyone who visits the school premises has to first wash their hands then allowed in. This showed how important the new hand washing station are. As they walked around, they saw some new latrines constructed and one of the ladies we met was so happy and appreciative to have her new latrine since had old one fell due to heavy rainfall. We also saw some new pits which have not yet been constructed on. This gave us an opportunity to teach these people how to construct strong foundation before construction of the structure on top. Enock also reminded the community members on the many diseases caused by poor sanitation and encouraged them to work hard to improve on their sanitation and hygiene.
