History

‘Compagnons Fontainiers du Rwanda’ (COFORWA | Fellow Engineers of Rwandais a national non-government organization with more than 45 years of practical grassroots-based experience in water supply, sanitation, and hygiene; rural energy and community development across Rwanda. It aims at promoting sustainable management of water and energy and improve efficacy of water and sanitation interventions by promoting good hygiene practices.

COFORWA was created in 1972 under the name l'Eau Aménagement-Assainissement (l'EAA | the Water Development-Sanitation). Until 1976, the organization worked to supply potable water with gravity pumps within the Nyakabanda community, where the original l'EAA office was located. From 1977 on, the organization started to expand their scope of work outside of Nyakabanda, to all corners of Rwanda. In 1980, l'EAA had all the necessary financing and was able to finalize all the projects it had started.

In 1982, l'EAA became a non-profit and was approved under the ministerial order 666/07 on September 27, 1982. This new organization took the name COFORWA a.s.b.l. Since then, COFORWA has had their main office in Kibangu Sector, Muhanga District, Southern Province, Rwanda. COFORWA also has an office in the Shyogwe Sector in the same District.
