Yesterday Alex b and Chris went to buyange village to introduce the mvule program, they first had a meeting with the CDO of magada sub county to outline the mvule curriculum and give a detailed plan of how kibo and the government would work together in the community. The meeting was very successful because the CDO was so excited to know about the mvule curriculum however she promised a total commitment from the government’s side to work together with kibo , she welcomed the development mvule program is bringing to the community, she said kibo has done a tremendous work in Namutumba district elevating the fight against ignorance and climate change. Chris thanked the CDO for opening her office for kibo whenever they needed it. After the meeting with the CDO, Alex and Chris proceeded to the village were they met with the community leaders who included the LC1, LC2, LC3 parish councilor and others, in the meeting Alex called upon the leaders to be exemplary if they wanted their community to develop, Chris also encouraged the leaders to reach every corner of the village to let everyone be part of the program.
