Rain Water Harvest System Built on Catholic Church

Reported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Amanda Mulder

In September, Water Project technicians were able to complete a rain water harvest system on the Catholic Church of Rukumberi.

Location:
Country: Rwanda
District: Ngoma
Sector: Rukumberi
Cell: Rubona
Village: Rwimpongo I
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.
