Viyole, Mzimba

The people here lack many things in this village. There is no health facility and not any pre-school for the many infants who live there. People depend on farming but this year the harvest is very poor due to less rain received during planting season. This has increased the challenges in the village because many homes have no food. They are grateful to drop4drop for the pump given in their village. They would like to grow many trees in the village so that the forest should returned.

Malawi’s economy predominately relies on agriculture, with the trade of agricultural goods being the only source of income for many households across all regions of the country. Not only do the wells we install provide a drinking source for the entire community, but they also benefit local agricultural projects, allowing for a continued supply of produce throughout the dry season.

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.
