Chilowa, Kasungu, Malawi
“The installation went well. Women danced as we were entering the village. They had no hope that a pump can be given to the village; others promised them before but they never came back. They are grateful to drop4drop for the assistance given to the poor communities. Water has been a major challenge in the village. The village is very far from the trading centres. No meaningful development in the area. Only one organisation is found in the village called BuildOn. This NGO is building class blocks in the area but no one thought of helping them with good water.”
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.
