It's part of WFP's groundbreaking Everyone Forever initiative, to create "forever" solutions to the world's water crisis one community at a time.

During the launch events, BC Water News interviewed the mayor of Rulindo, Justus Kangwagye, and Water For People CEO Ned Breslin to tell readers about the Rulindo Challenge and what's different about the Everyone Forever program.
