Mvule Community Development 
Lesson Taught
constitution writing 
Alex b and Chris went to nabituluntu village to continue with engaging the community members in the discussions about writing their constitution , writing a constitution is a gradual process that requires every member’s opinion. Last time Alex b and Chris visited nabituluntu, they encouraged the community members to have their own discussions regarding their constitution because it concerns them, the chairperson of the group promised to agree with the rest of the members and come up with w day to dimmer before kibo staff can come in. The community members indeed met and came up with a number of articles in their constitution including the name of the group, vision and mission of the group and how they will generate funds for the group. However Chris encouraged the members to discuss more about the group funds because members need to understand why they are paying membership fees, they need to understand how they will sustain their group. Alex encouraged members to develop a saving culture since that the only way they will sustain their group. Meanwhile members appreciated kibo for teaching them about how to manage their finances. The chairman concluded by inviting the community members to come for the meeting slated to be there on Thursday and this meeting will be a continuation of discussions about the constitution. Alex b and Chris will be going back to nabituluntu to continue with the discussion about different articles in this constitution and this time it will still be about the group funds next Monday.
