Mtowole, Mzimba, Malawi
“This was the only village left since our first installation in the Dimi area. They were reluctant as, before we started installing in other villagers, they thought that we were lying about providing them with free water. But once they saw their neighbouring villagers having clean water they requested for it also in their village. They grow a lot of tobacco and maize in the area. The village is far from the road causing problems in movement. The village has no trees as all were cut because people grow flue-cured tobacco which uses a lot of firewood.”

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.
