Ida and Diana, went to Nawandyo B to introduce the Community Empowerment Program to the community. The chairman with some community members received us. The turn up was not good as we expected. The chairman started by apologizing that they got an abrupt program of fumigation. The government was fumigating the village against mosquitoes.
We attended to the people present. Ida thanked them for sacrificing their time to come and attend the lessons. She encouraged them to mobilize the people to come in big numbers and also they have to obey government programs, because Kibo works hand in hand with the government programs. They agreed and said that, they had time till 2:00pm, because the fumigators need to get their houses open and also to remove the food and beddings so that, they are not contaminated.
Diana took them through some of the Community Empowerment Programs, which include, trust in God, harmony in marriage , domestic violence, poultry. She encouraged them 5o come in big numbers, so that they don’t lose out. They agreed and said they will mobilize their friends so that they come in big numbers. This was great news to us and we encouraged them to go earlier to meet the fumigators.
We later moved in 7 homes and got that the kitchens well utilized, the latrines are also in good shape. The Chairman thanked Kibo for the good programs in their village.
