September Campaign 2012

The people of Rwanda are rewriting their story. And it starts with clean water for everyone.

You did it. We reached our $1.7 million goal
for water projects in Rwanda. Thank you!

Here are a few of the campaigns that made it possible.

In the land of a thousand hills, wells are not the solution.

When it comes to water in Africa, many people think of wells. But here in Rwanda, they’re not always the solution. So our partner, Water for People, is investing in large-scale systems that protect clean water at its source and move it through pipes to tap stands where it’s needed. Learn more about this system in the project summary.

The power of momentum.

We’re tackling the water crisis in two sectors of the Rulindo District - Shyorongi and Ngoma - to give almost 26,000 people there clean, safe water. When they have total coverage, we’ll take on more sectors until all of Rulindo has access to life’s most basic need. And if all of Rulindo gets clean water, that will give Rwanda the momentum it needs to achieve 100% everywhere.
