On January 19th, 2024, the installation of a solar water pump in Chilope Village marked the beginning of a new era for its 3,236 residents. This life-changing project, made possible by the generous donation from the Kirsh Foundation, now pumps liters of clean water daily to 16 taps spread over 3,031.4 kilometers of piping throughout the village. The impact has been nothing short of transformative, enhancing education, driving economic growth, and significantly improving the villagers’ health. Before this, the community faced immense challenges in accessing water. The only handpump frequently broke down, and during the dry season, water was scarce. Villagers often had to walk for hours to find another water source. The dirty water they collected was a breeding ground for water-borne illnesses. The combination of disease, the time-consuming search for water, and sheer exhaustion left them with no time, energy, or health to pursue alternative income opportunities, trapping them in a vicious cycle of poverty and disease. With the new solar water pump, the villagers of Chilope no longer struggle for water. Clean water is now readily available, transforming their daily lives. Children can attend school regularly, adults can engage in productive work, and the overall health of the community has improved dramatically. The cycle of poverty is being broken, and the village is now thriving and growing, full of hope and new opportunities for a brighter future.

Nasuluma Village is home to 2,959 people and is remotely located in Mangochi, Malawi. For as long as the community can remember, they have lived without access to clean water. Women and young girls walked 1.5km multiple times a day to collect water from a contaminated open water source. The water source would run dry in the dry season, forcing the community to wait for hours or search for another alternative unsafe water source. Consuming the water from these water sources caused many waterborne illnesses including diarrhea and skin rashes. With the generous support from Craig Pollack, in May 2023, Innovation: Africa installed a solar water pumping system in Nasuluma Village, significantly improving the lives of the community. Children have returned to school to receive an education. Women are growing gardens, providing food security, and cooking safely.

The village of Havara Village, situated in the Zomba district within Malawi county faced a critical challenge. With a population of 3,280, the community depended on unsafe water sources, compelling women and girls to walk long distances daily to fetch water. This has had a profound impact on their livelihood since it has not only exposed them to waterborne diseases but has also hindered their ability to build businesses, attend school or even cook, wash or farm. However, a remarkable change took place on December 20th, 2023, in Havara Village, thanks to the generous donation from the Kirsh Foundation. They installed a solar water pump that now serves the entire population of 3,280 residents by delivering a substantial daily supply of clean water through 42 taps, spanning an impressive network of 10,702 kilometers of piping throughout the village. This intervention has brought about a wonderful transformation, elevating educational opportunities, driving economic growth, and significantly improving the health and well-being of the villagers. As a result, Havara Village is flourishing, experiencing growth, and looking toward a brighter future.
