Padzuwa 2, Kasungu, Malawi
“Lots of people came to witness and learn at the installation. Other youth were trained how to fix a pump so that if a problem a rises they can maintain own it themselves. There was a big water problem in their past. Women had to wake up early in the morning to stand at a well dug in the village. People in the village are farmers. They grow mostly Maize, Soya, Tobacco and Irish potatoes. Most of them live in grass thatched houses symbolising that they are poor. Schools are very far from the village causing more children to drop out of School.”

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.
