Safe Water Access in Rwanda

CO2balance works with local groups and NGOs in Rwanda to deliver clean, safe water by identifying and rehabilitating broken-down boreholes. An ongoing maintenance programme, alongside water sanitation and hygiene training, ensures a safe and reliable community water supply is maintained.

Each of the 12 micro-projects under this programme prevent 10,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions.

What this means for local people.

As well as reducing emissions and helping our climate, this project provides:

- A supply of clean safe water for communities

- Reduced incidence of waterborne diseases and diarrhoea, lifting the burden of disease on people’s livelihoods

- Less time spent collecting water (traditional sources, such as open wells and rivers, are often far away and highly seasonal)

- Less time and effort spent collecting wood to boil and sanitise water

- Reduced expenditure on wood fuel, leaving money free for other household expenses

- Reduced pressure on local wildlife and ecosystems due to reduced deforestation

The project is financed by Likano Project Development and Open Circle Investments under CO2balance’s Global Micro Programme of Activities.
