Chipimbininga 18, Nkhata-Bay, Malawi
“We were warmly welcomed in the village. Women and children sang songs and danced to show happiness for the pump given to them, as water was a very big challenge in the village. Most of the diseases they were suffering before was because of water. They have full hope that now they will live a happy life. There are some natural trees but more land in the area is bare. They depend on farming but they have no where to sell their produce because there are no good roads in the area. Preschools are there but they lack training and workshops.”

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.
