Gwesere, Kasungu, Malawi
“The installation went well despite the rains that disturbed the work. It was a long time since the well was build so we plastered it again. In this village people have been drawing water from the river. They are really happy to have their own pump in the village.People in the village are very poor. Most of them live in grass thatched houses. they grow a lot of soya beans and Maize for food and daily income. There are no good roads in the area and they find difficulties to move to other areas. There is no health facility in the village.”

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.
