DelAgua – Project Rwanda

DelAgua – Project Rwanda

Project Description:

The program will distribute high efficiency cook stoves and/or point of use water filters in East Africa, staring in Rwanda. Both technologies reduce the use of biomass on the baseline stoves, which are predominantly three-stone fires.

The technologies will be directly distributed to households, targeting those classified as ‘those in extreme poor’ and ‘the very poor’. Distribution will be conducted in collaboration with the Ministry Of Health, utilising the structure of Community Health Workers.

Sustainable Development:

  • Reduce water borne diseases
  • Reduce smoke inhalation
  • Increase productivity
  • New employment opportunities
  • Improve health education
  • Technology transfer and self-reliance
