Water projects in Muramba Parish

 Muramba Parish

In March 2004, it has been established the first visit of Engineers Without Borders (EWB)-USA at Muramba Parish and identified that some problems need sustainable solutions. This first visit was conducted by Dr. Bernard Amadei, Professor of Civil Engineering at Colorado University-Boulder/USA and Founder of Engineers Without Borders –USA. He was accompanied by other Engineers and other qualified from different disciplines of profession (Chemical, Civil, geological, mechanical, economists …)

They were specifically, focusing on developing communities; provide students with the opportunity to find solutions to some of the problems faced by the millions of people who are poor. It also challenges engineering students and other professions to identify vital issues which may be the greatest roadblocks to poverty alleviation through sustainable community development. The assessment was done on identification and implementation of community development projects.

From 2005 up to date, different groups of professors and engineering students (Civil, geological, chemical, economists, and journalists) from EWB-USA Chapters, those from German and Canada, conducted several visits in Rwanda, and then implement different community projects in different areas of Rwanda. The projects are “Water supply, rainwater catchment, solar energy, fuel briquetting, bridges, seminars, agriculture, education, etc.”
