Protected Springs Project – Malawi

Malawi Landscape Location

Misuku, Chitipa, Malawi, Africa

Community Description
Misuku is a remote village in the northernmost region of Malawi, very close to the border of Tanzania. The villagers do not have a reliable water source. Often water is collected from natural springs running off the mountains.

Project Description

The project is to build three protected springs in the Misuku Mountains. Funds will go toward purchasing cement, and paying Health Surveillance assistants and community health and water committee members to build the protected springs.

Project Impact

Each of the 3 springs will supply a safe source of water for up to 40 surrounding households. With an average household size of 7 persons, the springs will serve approximately 840 people.
