Recently, our good friends Heston and Roselyn from Lilongwe, Malawi (near the Mocha Club water pump project in Lizulu) stopped by the Mocha Club offices in Nashville. While chatting about water pump projects, they spoke about the many ways that, ultimately, “clean water *is* life” for their community.
Hearing that poignant assessment of the value of clean water, it’s with much excitement that we announce the completion of the solar water pump in Lizulu, Malawi! The pipes from the solar pump are linked to the Lizulu orphan-feeding center, which provides daily meals for over 500 orphans in the community. The nearby secondary school also has a tap outlet for students.
In order to make this a more sustainable project, metered water pipes will be linked to 3 households nearby to generate some income that will contribute to the ongoing maintenance of the taps as well as to assist in creating a vegetable garden for the orphans.
The entire community is truly blessed by and benefiting from the clean water flowing from this sustainable pump project!
We’ll update you on the projects in Ethiopia next month… stay tuned!
