  1. 1. TEN FOR 10: WATER FOR AFRICA SUPPORTING WATER FOR PEOPLE IN RWANDA SINCE 2010
  2. 2. • 1 in 4 do not have access to safe water; 1.8 billion worldwide • 1 in 3 do not have access to improved sanitation; 2.5 billion worldwide. • 6,000 die each day from water- and sanitation- related diseases; 90% are children. Yet, the statistics of the global water and sanitation crisis do not tell the whole story. Billions of dollars have been invested in the sector, but projects are still failing. Why? • Poor planning and execution; lack of local ownership; lack of a functional support environment, which undermines operation, maintenance, replacement, and extension of services; lack of follow-up (monitoring) to see if the projects are working over time.
  3. 3. SIMPLE OUTCOME-ORIENTED PRINCIPLES • EVERYONE: Every family, school and clinic in targeted districts has access to safe, clean water and sanitation. • FOREVER: Success is defined as full coverage being sustained over time so that targeted districts never need another international water and sanitation NGO again. • CO-FINANCING: Government and communities pay while external implementing agencies finance gaps needed to reach full district coverage but money needed declines over time. • MONITORING: Outcomes are monitored to verify results and help institutionalize capacity to address inevitable problems that emerge. • SCALE/REPLICATION: Momentum at district level leads to a national push around the principles of Everyone Forever.
  4. 4. ABOUT RWANDA 8 • Land of a Thousand Hills • Located in the Great Lakes Region: bordered by the DRC, Uganda, Tanzania and Burundi • Population: ~11.5 million • Most densely populated country in Africa • Democratic - decentralized government • Agriculture based economy • 37% live below extreme poverty line
  5. 5. WATER AND SANITATION IN RWANDA 9 Current Status (per the government): • Water Coverage: 82% in rural areas; 92% in urban areas • Sanitation Coverage: 45% • Vision 2020: 100% water and sanitation coverage throughout the country Challenges: • Rapidly changing demographics and intensified socio-economic development • Degradation from unsustainable and inappropriate management and land use practices • Conflicting demand for water resources: industry, agriculture and drinking water
  6. 6. ACTUAL WATER AND SANITATION SITUATION ON THE GROUND 10
  7. 7. EVERYONE FOREVER IN RWANDA Water For People is partnering with national and district governments, civil society and the local private sector to reach Everyone – every community, every school and every health clinic with access to safe water and improved sanitation, Forever in two districts: Rulindo District: – 283,514 people: 494 villages, 100 schools and 24 health clinics Kicukiro District: – 254,749 people: 327 villages, 64 schools, and 7 health clinics 11
  8. 8. REACHING EVERYONE: COMMUNITY, CLINIC AND SCHOOL PROGRAMMING 12
  9. 9. REACHING FOREVER: BUILDING SKILLS TO MAINTAIN SYSTEMS OVER TIME 13 Operation and Maintenance Training for Private Operators • Strengthen public-private water management model between district government and private operators • Support development and implementation of district wide water master plan • Embed monitoring system within the district government • Build sustainable tariff systems and capital replacement fund • Support sustainable sanitation through the introduction of sanitation products with rural savings cooperatives
