Tunduma, Nkhata Bay, Malawi
“The installation was good and women came to be taught how to draw water so that the pump should last longer. They have had water problems as long as they can remember and now they will enjoy their pump which is right in their village. People in the village are poor but men most the times spend their time burning charcoal and drinking beer. Women look for their families, they are willing to plant more trees in the village because more trees have been cut down.”
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.
