Wapata Chongo Village, Mzimba District, Malawi

“The pump installation was well done and many people were present to show their happiness. They are happy to have a pump in the village for the first time. Because at first they were drawing water from open wells which were not protected and also dangerous to infants. During the past villagers were walking long distances to draw water from open wells. People in the village depend on farming. Roads going to this village are very bad and no development has reached the village. Schools are there but many children do not go to school because of how poor they are.”

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.
