The meeting was well attended , Enock and Chris were able to meet 26 women and 12 men, present in the meeting was the vice chairman of the village, VHTs and the police officer mrs namukuve Oliver, she is the community policing officer, she encouraged husbands to help their wives in maintaining their sanitation facilities however mrs Oliver warned members who don’t have toilets to make sure they construct them before the government can use its force .George byakika the area vice chairman thanked kibo group for promoting sanitation facility construction in his area , he said this has greatly improved the lives of his residents however Vice chairman felt so disappointed in some members who were not cooperating well with kibo especially the WASh team he reported a one badaga who said he never dedicates at home but at work place ,the vice chairman chose a supportive committee to help him encourage the members to improve their sanitation standards ,he chose mukyaala Tom and namulondo zabina , Julius balikoowa, bosco wamulambi. He appealed to those he has chosen to spearhead the sanitation sensitization not to expect salary from kibo but should work for the good of their community. Enock thanked the members for sacrificing their daily home choirs to attend the meeting, he also thanked the leaders for mobilizing and encouraging every one to attend the meeting, during his speech Enock emphasized on a great need for everyone to have a standard toilet and a hand washing station at home. He asked what was still holding back some people to construct toilets and hand washing stations, a one Umar said both husband and wife equally have the responsibility to make a home clean but wives are trying to neglect their responsibilities to husbands however Enock encouraged both husbands and wives to be supportive to each other , he said this will improve the relationship in the family. Towards the end of the meeting Enock asked members to give themselves a deadline to accomplish the task of constructing sanitation facilities like the toilets and hand washing facilities. Enock will be going back to follow up on the construction of new facilities like toilets and hand washing facilities as he plans to carry out the second evaluation.
