Mission: To provide water and sanitation to the people of malawi.
Programs: Borehole repairs there are many borehole wells throughout the country of malawi that are in disrepair. In the past, other ngo's have drilled new wells without a community empowerment approach and with no training for the communities on the maintenance, repair or part sourcing channels. Freshwater project international rehabilitates these wells so that they, once again, produce clean water.
comprehensive wash in schools program - water, sanitation and hygiene (wash) at schools. In partnership with rotary clubs and schools around the world, bring education to schools in malawi. Schools receive a new water- point, latrines, hygiene education and access to purifier water packets.
new borehole drilling in summer of 2015, freshwater project international was able to purchase a drill rig in malawi to drill deep borehole wells. The purchase allows us to execute borehole projects for around 60% less than its previous cost. Drilling provides an exponential increase in access to safe, clean drinking water, reduced incidences of water-related infections, increased time for girls to attend classes in school, significant reduction of costs of well projects, assurance that wells are drilled efficiently and effectively so that trust is built with communities and increased sustainable local fundraising for office operations and other projects through rental income generated through other ngo's and sponsors.
I highly recommend supporting Freshwater Project International. Their program supports Malawi by providing people in rural villages, schools and health centers with access to fresh, clean water, safe sanitation, hand washing facilities and proper hygiene training so that they can enjoy good health, attend school, provide for their families and improve their life quality.
As a long time employee of a non profit that has collaborated with them on several water and sanitation projects in Malawi, I can attest to the dedication and impact of their work. Freshwater Project continues to be a valuable partner to us and we hope to continue including them in our program for many years to come!
