- Community based social committees such as Village Health Committee, Community Based Organisations, Safe-Motherhood Committee and Community Health workers were also gathered to monitor health issues in their communities and come up with timely information regarding health situation in their areas.
- 2 community based Bible Study sessions were held during the period. About 20 people attended.

Hello...I am Sub-Traditional Authority (Chief) Ngwelero and oversee a larger community including Group Village Head Taulo where FVM-C is carrying out its development. In my area we have had several NGOs who came up with interventions, some which have not been understood by us, the beneficiaries, in the rural areas. But Future Vision Ministries has remained unique. There is good collaboration between FVM-C and community based structures, including us, the chiefs.
I am grateful for the good works the people of this community have benefitted from which are supported by FVM-C. I am so happy to let you (FVM-C partners) know that the food and humanitarian aid you rendered to this community in 2015-2016 during floods has never been forgotten. I wish to plead with you if could again assist us relief food because harvest is very inadequate due to poor rainfall.
This type of background taught me how important it is to render service to the less privileged, especially to children.
