Keep reading to find out Pump Aid’s impact in 2019!
In 2019 we continued to empower people in rural Malawi to thrive in many communities. We helped children to flourish with increased life chances, entrepreneurs to develop profitable small businesses and households, farmers and communities to gain convenient access to reliable sources of water.
• Generating livelihoods, resilience and opportunities
• Improving sustainable access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene
• Encouraging independence and self-reliance
• Ending aid dependency for good
In this 2019 Impact Summary, we show the huge impact of Pump Aid’s work providing opportunities for children, communities and entrepreneurs in Malawi to have access to water and sanitation, lift themselves out of poverty and plant seeds of hope for their futures.
We also highlight the difference made in case studies focusing on James, a water entrepreneur, Joy, a small-scale farmer, and Mtisunge pre-school.
75% of the 10,000 pre-schools for under 5s in Malawi have no water, exposing children to
high rates of diarrhoea, illness and mortality. Currently, 24% of children under 5 are
suffering from diarrhoea, and 40% of children under 5 are stunted. Many are frequently
unable to attend school and suffer from slow learning ability, as a direct result of stunting.
Our integrated water, sanitation, hygiene and nutrition programme enables children to
enjoy a better start in life. No longer suffering from ill health, they can regularly attend
school, thrive and reach their potentials. The promotion of positive hygiene behaviour in
surrounding communities further improves health and opportunities for all. Improving the
development of children under 5 lays the foundations for their health, wellbeing and future
economic productivity into adulthood, benefiting wider society as a whole.
None of this work would be possible without the generosity of our supporters, so thank you to you all, and here’s to transforming more lives in 2020! Please donate to allow Pump Aid to continue creating an impact.
