Burundi – build together to manage together

The “Water, Spring of Life” project will bring drinking water to about 850 families living on the Rukanda hill, in Bururi (Burundi). After shared projects and goals were set with the local communities, we are now entering the construction phase.

Locals will be involved again and everybody will be able to offer his or her contribution to build the infrastructures together with specialised workers and hired labourers.

Construction sites are often located in areas not easily accessible or not accessible at all, and therefore in these days we have started to build or renovate the bridges that will allow personnel, equipment, and materials to reach their planned destinations.

The Muhondo bridge is one of many that is being renovated: students from a nearby school have joined the official workforce, offering their concrete help to complete the project.

Such a spirit of cooperation and direct involvement developed during both planning and construction is one of the most important aspects of this project and will facilitate the project’s future phase where the locals will be in charge of managing the brand new infrastructure and water supply systems in a fare and sustainable way.
