Irene went to Naisamula village to introduce the health education program. The meeting started with a word of prayer then a word from the chair man who thanked kibo for the friendship they have shown with his village. He further thanked the different programs that have participated in developing his village, first the WASH program that did a great job in improving the sanitation and hygiene of the community, the MUVULE program which has helped them learn practicing activities that have earned them income so as to support their families and STOVES program that has changed the lives of their wives,kitchens and saving fire wood. The chairman also thanked kibo for allowing the health education program to further improve their standard of living. He then encouraged the community to work together with the health program to see that health issues improve in their village. The chairman then invited the members to introduce themselves and their positions in the village and in the kibo program. After he introduction the health education representative was invited to take up the program. Irene started by thanking the community members for their participation in the different programs and embracing the new program. Irene introduced herself,program, and the content of in the program. Then further continued to explain what will be done in each lesson, home visits to check out on the hygiene, pregnant women,breast feeding mothers and their children, nutrition of the home which encourages putting up small vegetable gardens among others. Irene further informed the community that in this program kibo only does the teaching it doesn’t supply drugs to the community members, so Irene will only be encouraging and referring those with health issues to the hospitals to receive proper medication and diagnosis. The members further discussed on the meeting day, time and venue for their meeting Irene encouraging the men to fully take part in these lessons and continued mobilization for all the community members. The members encouraged Irene to make a door to door mobilization with some of the leaders so as to create more awareness to the other village members and so Irene scheduled another visit for the door to door mobilization with the leaders.
