Viva Con Agua Brings Clean Water to Rwanda – Water is Life

Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli is a charitable organisation based in St. Pauli, Hamburg (Germany), campaigning for clean drinking water worldwide.

Besides the air we breathe, water is the most fundamental source of life.
Water creates life, water is life. Water means healthy living, happy living. For Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli this is the primary motivation for our activities – the funding and implementation of water projects around the world and thus enabling people to access clean water.

Women and men of all ages, professions and backgrounds have access to the network, enabling everyone to bring in their own skills.
Viva con Agua is a platform for personal initiative and engagement! – put your ideas for a more social world into action and we will support you.

Viva Con Agua recently developed an initiative which is aimed at supplying Rwanda with clean water sources. In the Mwogo-Valley in Rwanda, the organization is developing 32 water sources to provide clean drinking water to village inhabitants, benefiting at least 25,000 local people.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mwogo-Valley is a region intended to be a shining example of how hunger, poverty, disease, or environmental destruction can be successfully fought. It is a densely-populated area in southern Rwanda where pressure on fields has almost exhausted them. The constructional building of the springs can mainly be carried out by the local population, integrated in a “cash for work” program. An improvement of the populations medical condition is ensured through the reduction of water related diseases.

How will this project solve this problem?

Viva con Agua is developing water sources so that villagers have a local source for clean drinking water.

Potential Long Term Impact

Clean water leads to healthier living and increased productivity of farming, leading to happier and healthier lives.
