Chalowataya, Mzimba, Malawi

“The village was full of joy to see a pump installed for them. They feel isolated since they are far from the main trading centre in Embangweni. But people grow more crops in the area and they have a lot of food. They produce more but have no good market. There is no health facility in the area causing them problems when they are sick. There is no nursery school in the village making infants stay at home with nothing to do. The water will improve health and save time previously spent collecting water for many hours a day.”

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.
