Enock went to this community to take the last batch of jerrycans to the residents who have completed the construction of the new hand washing stands. The community was educated and taught how to construct the new hand washing model about three weeks back. The residents embraced the program and learnt the core values of hand washing. Although our main goal is aimed at hand washing survey, we also encouraged the residents to maintain there sanitation facilities more so latrines, shower areas, dish racks, use of rubbish pits, kitchen. When we walked around we saw so many good latrines clean compounds which showed how the residents have continued cleaning their homes even when the wash team already completed. There have been great increase in the construction of hand washing stations and all are being used. The chairman and VHTs have also taken the lead to continuously monitor the progress of construction, guiding the fellow residents as well as distributing jerrycans to those homes which have completed the new hand washing station. During this day we saw about 40 new hand washing stands and this was a great sign of embracing the program development. Most homes have constructed two hand washing stations one in the front yard of the homes and the other stand is constructed around the latrine area. The people who got jerrycans have already started using the jerrycans effectively as taught to them. The local leaders are so grateful and appreciative for the new ideas of constructing hand washing stands which is helping to reduce the cutting down of trees like before. The leaders are also appreciative the great lessons which have improved the lifestyle of the community members through improving their health.
