Water Management

While Rwanda has a high annual rainfall and several large lakes, the country faces significant challenges with water management, most people walk significant distances every day, to collect and carry home a small amount of water for personal use. This is because the infrastructure, investment and knowledge about good water management practices is often absent. Usually local farmers rely on the seasons for growing crops and this limits productivity. The MSI is seeking to promote good water management practices by installing several water tanks and having two large dams for water collection. This enables us to irrigate our crops all year round and have our animals supplied with a regular amount of water. Local farm workers dug our dams by hand. We are planning to construct a third dam in the near future.
