Borehole well at Malama School

Our implementing partner, Freshwater Project International, is excited to report a successful installation of the water point at Malama Primary School in Malawi! The school originally had NO clean water source and students had to walk long distances to fetch water from various unsafe water sources throughout the community, often waiting in long lines for their turn. Students often became sick from drinking this unsafe water. Thanks to the participating H2O for Life groups listed below, they were able to drill a deep borehole well to the water table and install a hand pump right on the school grounds. Students have immediate access to clean, safe drinking water and have received hygiene and handwashing training. The sanitation component of this project will be addressed next. Thanks to everyone who donated and supported this project!
