Viva con Agua Brings Clean Water to Rwanda



In the Mwogo-Valley in Rwanda, Viva con Agua is developing 32 water sources to provide clean drinking water to village inhabitants, benefiting at least 25,000 local people.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mwogo-Valley is a region intended to be a shining example of how hunger, poverty, disease, or environmental destruction can be successfully fought. It is a densely-populated area in southern Rwanda where pressure on fields has almost exhausted them. The constructional building of the springs can mainly be carried out by the local population, integrated in a “cash for work” program. An improvement of the populations medical condition is ensured through the reduction of water related diseases.

How will this project solve this problem?

Viva con Agua is developing water sources so that villagers have a local source for clean drinking water.

Potential Long Term Impact

Clean water leads to healthier living and increased productivity of farming, leading to happier and healthier lives.
