Gitesi CWS is a private washing station built in 2005, even though it started its full operation in 2010. It is located in Gitesi area, in the district of Karongi in Western Rwanda.

Gahizi Alexis is the name of the owner. Local coffee farmers supply their coffee to Gitesi CWS and receive money, that is why the location of the washing station is of crucial importance to them.

The water used in CWS comes from mountain natural springs.
