Nestled in the heart of Africa, Rwanda is a country that has become one of the continent’s most dynamic and inspiring destinations.

Despite its small size, Rwanda is home to a wealth of natural beauty, cultural diversity, and historical significance that makes it a unique place to visit.

Over the last decade, Rwanda has made progress in expanding its water and wastewater treatment infrastructure. This sector has been prioritised by the government as a crucial driver of economic growth and social development, with investments in new treatment facilities, pipelines, and distribution networks. As a result, access to safe drinking water has increased. Rwanda has also pioneered novel wastewater management practices, such as employing natural wetlands for treatment, which have earned international recognition.

Rwanda is a country with a strong focus on sustainability, conservation, and community development. The country’s capital city, Kigali, is a hub of innovation and creativity, with a growing arts and music scene, and delicious food. Kigali offers a range of experiences for visitors, from exploring the city’s history and culture to immersing oneself in its vibrant street life. Whether you’re interested in learning about Rwanda’s past, experiencing its present, or enjoying its natural beauty, there’s something for everyone in and around this city.
