Chakulota Botha Village, Mzimba, Malawi

‘People of Chakulota village are very happy to have a pump for the first time in the village. Water has been a major challenge before. If they wanted to get clean water they were walking over 2 km to a borehole at the primary school. They thank Wells for Zoë for giving the village access to clean water.

The people in the village are poor and many men have gone to South Africa to search for jobs so that they can help their families back home. The only source of food is by farming. There are bare lands on which they want to plant trees if seeds can be provided.’

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.
