Juweta, Mzimba, Malawi
“The village is very far from Edingeni Trading Centre and so people here feel neglected in regard to any development being offered in the general area. They approached many NGOs for assistance but to no avail. They are grateful t drop4drop for the fast response after their request for a pump. Before their new pump, water was their biggest challenge. The task of having to walk long distances for poor quality water is the reality faced by millions of people throughout the country. The journey, often carried out by young children, results in them failing to attend school and not receive the education they require. Now with clean water, many of these opportunities are possible now.”
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.
