A community water project inaugurated in Rwanda's eastern district of Kirehe, offers a new model of cooperation between religious communities and public and private sectors in pursuit of human development and peace.

"This is a historic milestone for interfaith cooperation and public and private partnerships in Africa," remarked Rev. Dr Ishmael Noko, General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and president of the Inter-Faith Action for Peace in Africa (IFAPA) at the project's inauguration on 19 March 2008.
