Rain Water Harvest System Built on ADEPR ChurchReported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In July, a rain water harvest system was completed at the Mbuye ADEPR Church in the Jarama Sector. This system is expected to serve approximately 500 people in the surrounding community.
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.
