1 de Maio, Muanza District, Mozambique
DROP4DROP have teamed up with our in-country partner in Mozambique, to provide clean water to Muanza, in the Central Region of Mozambique. Only half of Mozambicans have access to improved water supply across the country. Muanza is bordered by the Indian Ocean and has four principle rivers. The climate of the district is tropical wet and dry and there are 3,000 farms with the main agricultural products being corn, cassava, cowpea, peanut, sweet potato and rice. DROP4DROP and our in-country partner are working tirelessly to reach as many rural communities as we can and provide a sustainable source of clean water to those struggling without access.
This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
