4 New Rain Water Harvest SystemsReported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In August, Water Project volunteers built 4 new rain water harvest systems. These systems were built on churches including at ADEPR Jarama in the Jarama Sector and at Catholic Gitare, ADEPR Kabuga, and EAR Kayenzi in the Kagogo Sector of Rwanda.
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.
