Kadako Nyaluwanga, Mzimba, Malawi

“We were warmly welcomed in the village and people danced to show their happiness upon our arrival. In the past they had been spending a lot of time nursing the sick because of water borne diseases. Now that they have safe water they are sure that their lives will be improved. The village is very far from the main road and they have problems in selling their produce. There is no hospital in the area and this is a problem when they get sick. A lot of people live in this village and most of them live in good houses because they can find money though farming of Irish potatoes and tomatoes.”

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.
