The project was to build and improve wells in the community.

Amy reports:

I completed the project shortly before being transferred to a new site. Four wells were improved.

The volunteer who replaced me, Oliver Cole, continues the work in the area with the Bangu Village Well Improvement Project – Malawi.

The shallow wells that we have been digging and cementing within Bango Village have been crucial to life as of late. With the water piping system in its last leg of degradation, no boreholes to be found, and rivers dried up during the dry season, these shallow wells have been the area’s only adequate water resource within the area.

People in the village and surrounding areas are constantly thankful and are now mobilizing themselves to continue the expansion of the project to surrounding areas.

We extend our thanks to Amy for completing this project, and to her friends and family for providing the funding.
