Adamba, Nkhata-Bay, Malawi
“People were extremely happy as we were entering the village, they had no hope that one time they will have a pump. They had a pump one km away but always there was along queue of people waiting to draw water. Women spent lots of hours to get a single bucket of water. People in the village are poor; they are farmers and they grow mostly Cassava for their daily living. The village is not very far from the main road and it’s no problem when you want to travel from one place to another.”

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.
