Forty poor families were given residential houses in the model village established in Mageragere sector of Nyarugenge District.

In total are ten houses constructed in four-in-one housing units worth Rwf1,042,557,619

Francoise Niyonsaba, a beneficiary in the village said that she was pleased with the support.

"I’m very happy to be among beneficiaries of these houses; I had nowhere to live so just had to always rent in Nyamirambo. I’m relieved of rent," she said.

The Minister of State for Community Development and Social Affairs, Dr. Alvera Mukabaramba urged beneficiaries on taking good care of the houses.

"This project is among government programmes aimed at providing good shelter to its population by, especially bringing the poorest in the loop. We urge you to own and maintain them," she said.

She added that the programme helps Rwandans live in safe place, but also helps the country to save land for more development activities.

"We encourage more people to come and construct in this village as they relocate from high risk zones," she added.

Nyarugenge District mayor, Kayisime Nzaramba said that the houses were given to genocide survivors and poor people who had been living in high risk zones.
