Update 1: January 5, 2014
Construction has officially begun! We expect the entirety of the project to take about 16 weeks for completion.  Project Details The Gazelle Foundation has big plans for 2014– a goal of serving 12,000 Burundians being at the top of the list. The Nyabikona-Kivumu system is the first project for us, being built alongside the Rabiro-Rugenda system. As shown in the drawing above, construction will span 5.6 kilometers (about 3.5 miles) featuring four (4) collection tanks, thirteen (13) tap stands – all flowing from one underground spring source. Population due to benefit from this new system is 1,500 citizens in addition to an Anglican church. To date, the Foundation – in partnership with the local communities – has constructed 12 systems that provide daily access to fresh, clean water for more than 25,000 citizens.
