Chazama, Kasungu, Malawi
“The water problem in the area was very pathetic. Women used to draw water from a river near the village. They have always been drinking bad water since often wastes flow into this river. They are happy people now because they have a pump in the village.
Most of them live under the poverty line and they live in bad houses. Schools are very far from the village causing non-attendance of children at school.”

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.
