Rain Water Harvest System installed at Pentecostal Church GituzaReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In July 2020, volunteers installed a Rain Water Harvesting System at the Pentecostal Church Gituza in Mfune village. The tank will hold up to 10,000 liters of clean water that will provide access to water to nearly 300 neighbors of the church.
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.
