The Malawi Mountain Project

————— a difficult terrain, a resilient people —————

In July 2007, Water Wells For Africa inspected the remote Lulwe Mountains of Malawi. However, it would take years before we could formulate a plan of action. Emboldened by the fortitude of those we met we immediately began to seek funding to put in 5 water wells in the summer of 2010.


  ————— well worth the effort —————

In July 2011, the WWFA inspection tour visited the Lulwe Mountains in Southern Malawi where we had recently constructed 5 new wells. This project was difficult because of the remoteness of the location and fuel shortages that Malawi is facing. The success of this project is the region’s first clean water ever, which makes it all the more joyful.

  • We don't build the water well for them. We teach them and have them build it "hands on" along side with us. We provide materials, the mud drilling, funding to source out locations suitable for water wells. If the well ever runs into a problem and stops working, the village people now know how to fix it. This is not our well, this is their well. They now truly own their own water well, providing clean water to their families. This is one of the reasons why we have wells almost 20 years old that are functioning and continuing to provide clean water to families all across Africa to this day. | Learn more at
