Isoko y’Ubuzima (“source of life”), a 5-year USAID-funded activity, provides technical and financial support for the Government of Rwanda through three strategic objectives:

  • Improve WASH governance
  • Improve drinking water services
  • Improve sanitation and handwashing services and products

The activity is implemented by a consortium led by Water For People to improve WASH service delivery. Isoko y’Ubuzima will channel the consortium's experience in working closely with national and district governments, the private sector, communities, and realize improved water access for 100,000 Rwandans.

The goal of Isoko y’Ubuzima is to increase and sustain equitable access to and use of safe drinking water and sanitation services and builds on the achievements under Isuku Iwacu, a USAID-funded program that was active from 2016-2020.
