Alex went to meet with the government officials at the district and the sub county to mobilize them to attend the triggering day that will soon be conducted in Kitukiro- Busumba village. Having met the district water officer about three weeks ago, the district officials appreciated kibo group for the help to be rendered to this village and promised to backup kibo group to see that it succeeds in Kitukiro village. They however asked kibo group to keep them in the loop at every step that will be taken. It’s very important that all government leaders at the district and sub county level all participate in kibo group activities right from the start to build that relationship with the government as well. Alex therefore met first with the district water officer of Buyende district, Mr. Ziija to inform of the next step of triggering to be conducted in Kitukiro village and he personally promised to attend and encourage the village residents to participate actively in kibo group activities. He is one of the long serving officials in the district and knows the history of kibo Group working in the district in the past few years. The water officer wanted to hear from kibo group about the projected time to drill the borehole in this village. Alex told them that the well can be drilled only if the village has met the required sanitation standards as set by kibo group. However the plan to drill a well in this village has been estimated in August 2021. Alex then also went to the sub county to meet the health assistant and invite him at the triggering meeting expected on 10/03/2021. The sub county office is also happy to hear from kibo group and it’s plans in the sub county. Because of the long distance from the district office, Alex was unable to reach the village but talked to the village chairman to continue mobilizing the village for the triggering day and reminded him that the triggering would take place on 10/03/2021.
