Our work in Malawi

156 Malawi Hero 2

Our focus in Malawi is delivering lifesaving access to safe water, which we’ve been doing since 2015.

We've been delivering lifesaving access to safe water in Malawi since 2015.

We’re providing access to safe water with chlorine dispensers throughout eight districts in Malawi: Balaka, Blantyre, Chiradzulu, Machinga, Mangochi, Mwanza, Neno, and Zomba. We have 16,000 chlorine dispensers operating as of July 2023, following a rapid expansion with over 12,000 new dispensers installed in a little over a year. We’re also scaling in-line chlorination across the same districts, plus Phalombe and Ntcheu, expanding safe water access to communities where chlorine dispensers are not an appropriate solution. Currently providing safe water access to 2.8 million people and counting, we’re reaching over 15% of Malawi’s population.
