The Rotary Club of Oklahoma City funded 3 wells this summer for the people of Easter Province, Rwanda. Rwandans4water team is currently completing the second and third well. Here is a video of the dedication ceremony of the first well. This well serves around 100 families nearby. Their water source was flowing water from an irrigation system for rice plantation close by. The population celebrated for the well and thanked the Rotary Club for the generous donation.
Today, after a long time of some paper work, Rwandans4water received its temporary certificate to operate in Rwanda as a National Non-Governmental Organization. The team is to submit the application for its legal personality after 9 months. This is very good news as we work hard to increase the impact of our work. We take it as a call to action!
