Activities Description:
Wells for ZoŽ is a small, personal, Lucan-based, Irish, voluntary organization, working in Northern Malawi since 2005. Our main focus is enabling the rural poor to access clean, safe drinking water. A fully voluntary organization where 100% of all donations go straight to the projects in Malawi We manufacture the ZoŽ Pump a simple plastic hand pump in Mzuzu which can be maintained by village women. Villagers dig wells, provide sand and bricks and all labour. w4z supply pump, pipes and cement. This pump can then supply up to 500 people with clean water for life. So far approaching 600,000 people have water because of this. We have recently perfected a new irrigation pump which will prove invaluable for farming. 8 km from Mzuzu is the Lusangazi Sustainable Organic Farm. Much of its focus is on research, combined with conservation agroforestry. The farm uses no Artificial fertilizer or Chemical pecticides and is wholly organic. It boasts well over 100 plant varieties and has a seed saving programme. It has been certified as a place for seedling production getting 96% in its evaluation. The farm employs 14 people. This year it will produce the following, budded and grafted seedlings: Citrus, Mango, Apples, Plums, Peaches, Paw Paw, Passion Fruit and Guava (35,000 in total). We support communities in the establishing and running of more than 50 preschools, but the communities themselves do the work. Our main contribution is in the training of caregivers. This work is generally associated with Women’s Self Help Clusters. This year we will support 132 girls who have qualified for Government Secondary School, but have no possibility of finding fees. We believe that education can be an unstoppable process in the liberation of girls to certainly change their world and maybe more.
