Muhabi Shaba, Mzimba, Malawi

Warmly welcomed in the village they never thought that at a certain time they could have a pump in the area. There is a borehole near the village but they are forced to pay a lot of money if they want to draw water from it, this forced them to draw water from open well. People in the village are poor but they are hard workers, they grow tobacco and other crops for food and income, they are willing to grow more trees in the area if seeds will be given to them and they are also ready to work with drop4drop and partners to continue the process of providing clean water.

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.
