Due to the generous support Aqwalife received, we were able to make a substantial investment to support Charity:Water’s mission in Malawi as an official Water Project Sponsor, and we are thrilled to share that the projects are complete!
The update, which comes from Charity:Water, in part, reads:
“100% of your generous donation funded one drilled well and one school piped system tap stand.
Malawi consistently ranks toward the bottom of the Human Development Index, and last year the Malawi government highlighted water at the national level in their development strategy as a major concern hindering economic and social advancement.
But that’s all changing—thanks to you! Your generous gift was part of a $1.25 million commitment that helped bring clean water to more than 44,983 people through the construction of 167 clean water projects located in the Mzimba District.
Our local partner, World Vision (WV), works with communities to prevent diarrhea and other waterborne diseases by constructing and rehabilitating wells with handpumps, piped water systems, and sanitary facilities. To support their goal of reaching universal water coverage in all WV project areas by 2030, they are working on a district-wide approach in Malawi, achieving universal water coverage and working to make communities open defecation free one-by-one. This approach has proved effective, resulting in stronger relationships with the government and other important development implementers.
Since 2012, charity: water has supported World Vision in achieving universal water coverage in 6 Area Programs in the Mzimba District. To date, WV has achieved universal coverage in one of these areas (Mutchenda) and, thanks to your support, we’re continuing to make significant progress for the people of Malawi.”
