Kaluka Mwandira, Mzimba, Malawi
“People were happy in the village because it is the first time to have a pump. They have been drawing water from open wells they dug sometime back. They have been requesting good water through their councillor and Member of Parliament but nothing happened. The village has several problems like; they walk long distances to have medical care, and the frequent diseases being water borne diseases. People are poor and many of them fail to send their children to secondary schools because there are no secondary schools. Clean water is a step in the right direction for this community.”

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.
