Taweni Jere, Mzimba, Malawi
“The installation was good and people were happy to have a pump in the area of paramount Chief Mbelwa. This is a border area of Malawi and Zambia. They extend their appreciations to drop4drop for thinking of the poor people in rural areas. People lack many things in their lives since they are very far from main towns. They depend on farming but when selling their produce, they find very little money because vendors go there and buy the produce at a low price. With the water, they can save many hours previously spent collecting water, and can now focus on improving crop growth and earning more money.”
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.
