In the project districts of Dowa and Kasungu, around half the population lives without access to clean drinking water. This makes the region one of the poorest in Malawi. In cooperation with local communities and village communities, defective boreholes and well systems in Malawi are identified and repaired as part of the project. In order to prevent the wells from failing again, locals are being given technical training so that they can carry out the construction, maintenance and operation of the boreholes independently in the future.


In this way, access to clean drinking water and local living conditions can be sustainably improved. In addition, the project creates a financing mechanism for communities that ensures the long-term maintenance of the wells.
