FMSI prepares a project that will benefit about 15,000 people with potable water

The Marist Foundation for International Solidarity (FMSI) and the Marist Brothers of Save (Rwanda), Afrique Centre-Est Province, have launched the development of a project that will provide potable water to nearly 15,000 people in 22 locations in the surrounding area and 22 religious schools in the area: 4 Marist, 15 diocesan and 3 from the Benebikira Congregation.

The project includes the replacement and installation of a completely new potable water extraction and pumping system, which will cost an average of 10,000 euros.

In order to initiate the proposal, a representative of FMSI, Francesco Mastrorosa, visited the site from March 10 to 15 and verified the feasibility of the work. During his stay, Francesco spoke with all the representatives of the beneficiary organizations, with the representative of the possible company to which the works would be entrusted, and also with the Bishop of Butare, Philip Rukamba, for the formal and legal implications of the case. n order to accelerate the realization of the project, FMSI is already working on the drafting of the proposal to be submitted to the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI) for the financing of the project.
