Monjeza 1, Mzimba, Malawi
“Monjeza village is in Mdezu. People in the area are willing to work with any organisation coming in the area. We had a good installation time. People were very excited because they never thought at a particular time they will have a pump in the village. They have natural trees in the village but they need pine seeds to plant in the areas where trees were cut. The big problem remaining in the area now is that people grow more food but they are failing to sell their goods because of poor roads.”
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.
