Total Attendance
Manuela and Lorna went to Naibore village to meet with the community leaders to introduce Life Skills. This visit was mainly intended to meet the community leaders and inform them about the new program which Kibo intends to introduce in that village, Objective By the end of the meeting all 5e community members will be knowing what Life Skills entails. Overview Upon reaching the village, we met Juliet who walked with us to a few homes showing us some of the stoves that were built in this village. After moving in these homes,we came back to the meeting place where we waited for a few members to join us since we were just introducing the Program to the community members. When the community members had come 12 in number, an opening prayer was made and members introduced themselves to us and so did we Kibo Staff. The chairman then welcomed the community members and Kibo staff and asked anyone among the community members to give a report on Kibo activities. Juliet reported on the stoves, the borehole status and she thanked Kibo so much for the change they have brought in this village. Together they sung a song together thanking Kibo and thereafter welcomed the Manuela and Lorna to deliver to them what they had for them. Manuela and Lorna thanked the community members for being cooperative and asked them that even in this new program to please do the same. Manuela introduced the program as the Skills that we need in our everyday life . She broke down the program by summarizing the topics under Life Skills Education where she mentioned we have 7 topics but under each subtopic and decision making being the longest of them all. The community response was great and the chairman was also excited since as leaders at the subcounty they were taught some of these things and it was good that now it was coming to the community. After this we were able to select the day to meet which was Friday and also the time which was 12noon. We also selected a committee for the Life Skills program. Conclusion The community was welcoming towards the program and we mentioned that on the next visit we will be carrying out community mobilization in preparation for the first community meeting.
