Rwanda Natural Energy Project: Water Treatment Systems for Rural Rwanda (Shyira and Fawe)



The proposed project activity will install water treatment plants at two sites in rural Rwanda. The water treatment plants will be photovoltaic driven ultraviolet disinfection systems which provide a radiative thermal load to the water and uses gravity fed filtration where appropriate; this will provide bacterially decontaminated water safe for drinking, food preparation and personal hygiene. These water treatment systems substitute the use of non-renewable firewood that would have been required to treat water by boiling. This small-scale project activity will be implemented and managed by Manna Energy Limited (MEL) in partnership with Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) and the Rwanda Ministry of Education (MINEDUC).
