Luguba, Mzimba, Malawi
“The installation went well and people were happy to receive a pump. Previously they had a different type of pump which was installed in 2015 but it is no longer working. People drank water from the river which was not good for their health. People in the village are local farmers, they depend much on their hybrid cows which produce milk and when they sell milk they have money for their families. They are willing to plant trees in their village since they have land.”

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.
