Chikosera, Mzimba, Malawi
“The villagers welcomed us well and the installation process went on well. Although we met some challenges like everything not being finished due to weather but when villagers were instructed to do the job everyone participated. Apart from water problem in the village, they also complained that malaria is a challenge in the village. We instructed them to cut the grass short and cover all stagnant water so that there should not be a breeding area for mosquitoes.”
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.
