Mutayamu, Mzimba, Malawi

“Happy people excited to receive a pump in the village. People used to draw water from open wells and many people suffered from water borne diseases in the past. They have natural vegetation but people are willing to plant more exotic trees in the village because they are burning charcoal hence cutting down natural trees.”

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.
