Mvule Community Development 
Lesson Taught
Abraham met nine Buluvu community members and the purpose was to introduce the Mvule community development program to the community by moving to their homes. Abraham and Smith one of the community member moved to eight homes but they were meeting women because all men went to work somewhere. They met one member who built a brick water tank and he is using it for a fish bond which he made, he said that he has one thousand two hundred fish in the pond. They proceeded to the church where they found some members in the church building praying and they welcomed them. Abraham introduced the Mvule community program to them and they said they like the program. They were six women and four children. Then they went to some homes around and mostly found women who promised to be in the meeting next time. They are going to decide the meeting meeting place for both sides lower and upper. Abraham told them that he can not meet two groups at once it is good if they can get a middle place whereby every side can move to it for meeting. They are struggling because the lower part are members of the church while the upper are not and they said that water source struggled to get where to drill the bore hole because the church members were saying that they want the bore hole near the church building and yet there is a bore hole at the school which is near the church. Abraham will be introducing planting of trees especially Mvule, spacing and size of the holes to the group in the next meeting.
