Summary

University of Colorado Boulder - Engineers Without Borders - Team Rwanda is planning and fundraising for our summer 2020 rainwater catchment implementation and M&E evaluation of past systems to provide a clean, sustainable water source for almost 2000 people in the community. We also hope to instill educational programs for water use, proper treatment, and storage.

Challenge

Rwandans in the Cyanika sector struggle to find clean water sources for their daily needs, some often having to walk 2-4 hours everyday to find water sources. This has long term affects on youth education and the economic value of community members.

Solution

We hope to empower our community to be involved in helping solve the problems they face directly. While planning and designing a rainwater catchment system for the community, we are dependent on the local community to come together and help construct such a structure. These rainwater catchment systems can provide thousands of liters of water for the community and ensure they have a local water source for their needs.

Long-Term Impact

We hope to continue to improve the attendance in schools and economic flow of the local community by providing them a local water source, allowing them to address other projects and needs in their community. We also plan educational mechanisms and outreach to ensure risk minimization from health problems by proper water treatment and sanitation behavior.
