Francisco Manhanga, Gondola, Mozambique
DROP4DROP have teamed up with our in-country partner in Mozambique, to provide water to the Gondola District. This district is located in Manica Province of Central Mozambique, which borders the neighbouring country of Zimbabwe. The population is estimated to be 201,735 of which 51% are women. Most people in this area rely on subsistence farming for income of which the main crops are maize, cassava and rice. Currently over 14.8M people, over half of the population, in Mozambique do not have access to a clean, safe water source. DROP4DROP and our in-country partner are working tirelessly to reach as many rural communities as we can and provide a sustainable source of clean water, as well as hand-wash facilities, training, soap and masks to combat the spread of COVID-19.
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.
