Mdilira Tembo, Mzimba
This village lacks many basic human needs. The people here heard of similar drop4drop projects in their area; supplying communities with their own pumps, free seeds and preschool workshops and they felt they would greatly benefit from a new well.The lack of access to clean drinking water is a prominent issue facing the people of Malawi. With a dense population of close to 20 million people, half are reported to live below the poverty line with a quartering experiencing extreme poverty.
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.
