Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 8: Teaching Children 
Diana and Ida went to Maliga to continue with the lesson of chores and responsibilities in children. Ida welcomed the community and thanked them for putting on their masks. She told them Covid is real, they should not play with their lives because life can never be replaced. Ida asked the mobilizers what happened to the number of attendance, the chairperson said that they had an abrupt village meeting, he requested someone to step in for him so that he attends the Kibo program, Ida said that we shall attend to the group that is available and the next meeting they should come in big numbers and also bring their children since they are still in holidays, and these lessons are very important to them. Diana continued with the lesson of chores and responsibilities in children. She asked the community if they still remembered what was taught they said they did remember but wanted further explanations. Diana thanked them for taking good care of their families. She told them that children need to be encouraged to do chores, because it builds their confidence, it teaches them to work well with others, children are happier doing chores even if they see it as burdensome, chores teach children self discipline. They learn how to relate with others and also be responsible. The chairperson was so happy, he thanked the Kibo staff, the Directors for giving them the best programs, they used to drink dirty water, but because of Kibo they drink clean water, the kitchens are doing well and the community is happy, the hygiene has improved. He requested us to thank the Directors for the great work done.
