Rain Water Harvesting System Built at Anglican Church KarambiReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
Volunteers built a Rain Water Harvesting System at the Anglican Church Karambi in Karambi village in the Rilima sector in July 2019. This system is expected to 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.
