59,000 Rwandans to Benefit from $18M JICA Water Project

Rwandan communities will soon benefit from clean water with the $18 million project launched by the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The water project intends to improve the water infrastructure to Rwanda’s Ngoma and Kirehe districts, where it is expected to benefit some 59,000 people.
