Follow-up of the project

Date: June 24th, 2018

Follow-up august 2018

Date: August 17th, 2018
 
Name project: Project 81 – Rainwater tanks

General status:

The beneficiary households were selected from the poorest families and by lottery in the village Runege near the primary school ADEPR Bweyeye. After the selection we met with the beneficiaries to explain the origin of the funds, the maintenance of the reservoirs and the sustainable continuation of the project.

Progress since last status report:

-The tanks are placed in the vicinity of the gutter, connected by PVC pipes.
- The collector is connected to the gutter and recovers a part of the water that flows into it.
- The cistern of the collector is equipped with a tap, ideal for filling water cans.
- When the tank is full, the overflow removes the excess water.
Result: 18 tanks were installed.

Financial status:

Problems/concerns:

Transport is difficult and expensive: only in Kigali one can buy tanks.
