James Village, Mzimba, Malawi
‘The pump was well installed and many people came to witness the installation process. They were happy to have safe water from a pump the first time; in the past they were drawing water in open wells which was not safe for their health.
People in the village are hard workers. They have large land where they cultivate different kinds of crops like, cassava and maize. The big challenge they face is shortage of farm inputs like fertilizer and seeds therefore they earn low yields which leads to low income.’

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.
