RWHS for Methodist Church RwimpongoReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
A Rain Water Harvest System was installed in June 2020 on the Methodist Church Rwimpongo in Rwimpongo I Village. This 10,000 liter tank will serve an estimated 315 people in the surrounding area.
We place these rainwater collection tanks at centrally-located churches, which shortens the walk for water and improves water quality. Churches sell the water at an affordable rate and use the income to maintain the system. Remaining funds are given to the poorest members of the community for school fees, health insurance, and other basic needs.
