Rain Water Harvesting System Installed at Pentecostal Church RiziyeliReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
Water Project volunteers completed a Rain Water Harvesting System on the Pentecostal Church Riziyeli in Gitega village of the Rilima sector. This system will serve 500 nearby residents and church members.
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.
