Manuela went to Bulyowa to conduct mobilizing exercise, the reason of her trip was to move home to home to mobilize community members with the leaders. The leaders will introduce Manuela to the members and also Manuela will get to know where all her participants will be coming from and where they stay. This exercise helps in promoting relationships between people. Objective By the end of this exercise, Manuela will be able to access which lessons to teach on that day. By the end of this activity, community members will be knowing who their teacher is for life skills. Overview Manuela reached the village found 5 people , three men and two women waiting for her as she has planned to meet them and they move home to home mobilizing people and also informing them about life skills program, they drew their plan on how they will move, after that, they started their move. The leaders did a great job introducing Manuela and Irene to the community members as they would explain to the members about the new program which will be implemented in their village . They moved in 45 homes since they decided to divide-themselves up, it was easy for them to beat those homes within two hours. During this exercise, the team was interested in knowing their hygiene status, the current status of their children if they are helping their parents, if they are pregnant or married, Manuela also advised the parents to come along with their children from age 12 and above. As they were moving some members where asking questions that some of them are not Kibo Group how will they manage to be part of that program, Manuela responded that this program is for everyone in the community. It was along way with to much sunshine but they manage to move in some homes too, we found some members drinking as early as that time mostly the men and the women were at home with their children. Finally, after that, the team sat down and they agreed to continue with the mobilization informing members about Life Skills program.
