Rwanda Water and Health Infrastructure

Commitment by

STARS Foundation, Greif, Inc.

In 2015, Stars Foundation and Greif Inc. committed to improve water and health infrastructure in Rwanda by distributing PackH20 water transport backpacks, creating micro-enterprise opportunities and improving health infrastructure. Specifically, partners including the Rwandan Ministry of Health, Partners in Health and Inshuti Mu Buzima, will distribute 100,000 PackH2Os to address the issue of water transportation and clean storage; provide education and socialization around hygiene, sanitation and basic water supply storage; build one micro-production facility to manufacture the packs in-country; provide $150,000 to improve the infrastructure of a minimum of six community health outposts; and conduct an operational study to evaluate effectiveness of the packs in Rwanda. As a result, 600,000 Rwandan people within 100,000 households will have access to new methods of water collection, transport, and storage with the potential for significant scale-up.
