Ziwika, Mzimba, Malawi
This village was also left during our first installation in Dimi area, because they thought our pump was not strong enough, but when they saw their neighbouring villages enjoying their pumps, they requested one for their village. They are very thankful for their new pump.
The whole village depends on farming. Most of the young men have gone to South Africa to search for work opportunities because they had nothing to do at home. Most of the places are bare with no trees, so they have requested tree seedlings.
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.
