Kachilanga, Mzimba, Malawi
“People came in large numbers to see for themselves how the pump works. They thanked drop4drop for helping the village with safe water. They had dug ponds near the river where they were drawing water for daily use. Hospitals and schools are a bit far from the village and they have no nursery schools and children are too old when they get to go to school. People in the village are poor but they are hard workers. They grow a lot of maize and sweet potatoes for their daily food and 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.
