Jimu, Kasungu, Malawi

People were cheerful and welcomed us in their village. They were walking long distance to get water from the river. They are happy now because they have clean and good water in their area through the clean water pump.

Most of the people in the village are poor. Many of them are farmers and this year they are waiting to have good harvest. They have grown mostly Maize, Soya and Tobacco. Road networks are very bad. There is no Secondary School in the village and most children don’t go to school.

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.
