Rain Water Harvest System Built at EAR Mbuye

Reported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Amanda Mulder

In September, volunteers built a rain water harvest system on the EAR Mbuye church in the village of Meraneza in Jarama sector.

Location:
Country: Rwanda
District: Ngoma
Sector: Jarama
Cell: Kigoma
Village: Meraneza
Solution:
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.
