Kevin and Cristina at Wells for Zoë
November-December 2018: Kevin and Cristina visit WELLS FOR ZOE in Malawi to work there
Wells for Zoë offers the opportunity to spend some time working in Malawi.
Many use this opportunity to get to know the organization and to support it in this way.
The journey and the stay are financed by the volunteers themselves.
Information is available here
Kevin ( here ) and Cristina ( here ) were in Malawi in November and December 2018.
Some impressions of their visit in pictures:
Arrival via the very strenuous land route from the north, from Tanzania.
Planning the changes to the pump design to improve performance and durability with Harisen.
Collaboration in the pump factory, Kevin installs a CNC milling machine and writes a software code that makes it easy to manufacture valve parts.
Wells for Zoe employees and volunteers are always welcome.
Burnt bricks, some of which are used for the well construction on the left.
The villagers (from 8 to 80 years old) help. Wells for Zoe can not and does not want to be active without their own initiative and cooperation. Upon completion, the well will be handed over to the sole responsibility of the village.
The "building supervision" ...
Assembly of pump parts on site.
The handing over of the new pump to the inhabitants of the village.
How many liters does this woman carry home? But at least only a short distance and not 5 miles! On the right is the new pump.
Another pump shortly before the handover.
