Moses Chilenje, Mzimba, Malawi
This village in Edigeni faces many challenges similar to other local villages. No other Organisation has come to help the people in the village except for drop4drop. People are thrilled as this is the first pump to be given to them. They would like to grow more Terphrosia in their fields to increase soil fertility if seeds are given. DROP4DROP’s mission in Malawi is not only to provide local communities with specialised water wells and pumps that suit their situation but to give them the tools and knowledge they need to maintain and use the equipment for themselves.
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.
