Chris went to buyange village to review the previous lessons to new members who had just joined and also introduce a new lesson on digging holes and putting manure , Chris met 19 community members who participated in the meeting, these included 10 women and 9 men . The chairperson of the Kibo well Mrs tamwenda farida who has been away for long time chaired the meeting, she thanked Kibo for uniting their community, she said t he unity Kibo brought to their area has become a pillar in the development of the community therefore she requested the members not to take Kibo group for granted but to use this chance while Kibo group is still in their community. Mrs Tamwenda farida thanked the safe kitchen stoves department and the WASH programs for promoting sanitation and giving them clean water in their area , she appealed to the members to work well with Chris and always come to the meetings whenever she calls them. Chris first reviewed the past lessons to the new members who had attended, he reminded them of what mvule program stands for, the importance of planting trees and their benefits and how to plant the trees, Chris picked members to explain to their fellows what they have leant since Chris introduced the program in their community, one of the members Chris picked was . Mr Kirya one of the members in the meeting said he learnt the benefits of planting trees, how to plant trees, the measurements of the holes and distances betweeen the trees and where to plant different species of of trees however he said the most outstanding lesson he learnt was loving his children by giving them the care that they deserve, mr kirya said he learnt this when Mr Henry Ochieng the Kibo group country director illustrated the relationship between trees and the family members using his own children, Henry that day encouraged parents to take care of the trees as they take of their children . Chris then took the members to their gardens and demonstrated to the how to dig the holes and apply manure before they could plant the trees. During the demonstration Chris was making sure members ask questions , Mrs farida asked the use of applying manure , Chris answered by saying manure provide good food nutrients to the tree to grow well. In conclusion Chris appealed to the members to go back home and teach their neighbors how to dig holes and help them dig when required .
