————— the investment of a lifetime —————

Water is the foundation to the first steps of development that a village takes, and has immediate impact on every part of rural life. Each of our wells can serve up to 2,000 people’s basic daily needs. We take careful measures to ensure that they last for at least 20 years.

 

completed projects

As of January 2012 WWFA is responsible for the completion of 130 wells. 97% of all our wells are still functioning properly, including ones installed in 1996 and 1997. We are serving an estimated 260,000 people every single day.

 

current projects

WWFA has mobilized 15 communities to receive wells this year. 10 of them are located in the mountains of Katema on the South of Lake Nyasa, Malawi. The other 5 are in the flatland of Mt. Mulanje, in a place called Uthwa. Learn more about these projects.

 

future projects

In 2009 WWFA surveyed 130 separate communities that met preliminary qualifications and are prepared to work with WWFA  to build a well. All of these locations lack a clean and sustainable water source within 2km and struggle to attain health care services.
