Muhabi Shaba, Mzimba, Malawi
The installation went well and people were happy to see us installing a pump in their village. This village was one of the villages left during our first pump installation in the area, Everyone is happy that they now have their own village pump. Generally, people in the village depend on farming. They grow tobacco, maize and other crops. Women in the village are the ones who mostly go to fields to work.
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.
