Zebedia, Mzimba, Malawi
Malawi is one of Africa’s most densely populated and least developed countries. Most people live in rural areas where water is scarce; as a result, many women and children spend hours of their day walking to collect water. Over 80% of the population is employed in agriculture, and the long-lasting effects of recent droughts are particularly pervasive. Rural communities particularly struggle to generate stable income, as the effects of challenging landscapes are far less forgiving than in urban areas. Working across Malawi, drop4drop focuses on implementing community led water teams to ensure efficiency and longevity of every clean water project.
