Maluzi 3, Kasungu, Malawi

“There was a big water problem in the area. They dug wells near the river but were not protected. People have been suffering from water borne diseases for years but now they have full hope that this will be the thing of the past.People are poor and they depend on farming. they are very far from the trading centre causing more challenges when they want to sell their produce. They grow a lot of maize, Irish potatoes and soya. Natural trees are found but they need tree seeds to grow on bare lands.”

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.
