The full handover and details can be found here: https://projecteverest.crowdicity.com/post/403685 The Malawi Agriculture Assessment Team focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the issues faced by smallholder farmers in Malawi. This was achieved by conducting the Empathise, Define and Ideation phases of the Design Thinking process. The key issues found revolved around most farmers only having one harvest per year due to lack of irrigation. This poses a threat to both food and income security as not enough produce is yielded during the dry season to provide sustenance to families, nor is their income consistent year-round. Mono-cropping and a lack of crop rotation also means the depletion of essential nutrients from the soil, resulting in a widespread dependence on fertilizer to ma...
Engineers without Borders, USA is a nonprofit organization aimed at creating a better world by empowering emerging leaders to ensure that communities have access to adequate sanitation, safe drinking water, and other basic human needs. The University of Delaware EWB Chapter has recently begun projects to ensure a clean and accessible water supply for communities in Malawi and the Philippines.

www.NyInternetCafe.Org - Twitter.com/NyInternetCafe A great story of a succesfull young African man. Around the age of 14 through only reading books and seeing picture, create windmills to create electricity for his village, also built streams and even solar panels - Visit our website: NyInternetCafe.Org
The Africa Progress Panel estimates that it may take until 2080 to connect all Africans to a centralised grid electricity system. In the absence of grid electricity, small-scale off-grid solar is undergoing huge growth across Africa. It’s a potential leapfrogging technology for sustainable development. On the shore of Lake Malawi, the Zayed Solar Academy is aiming to catapult Malawi onto the solar bandwagon.

Sponsored by The Keltbray Foundation, Keltbray Rail’s Head of Rail, Mark Carroll, and Operations Manager, Bill Peak, traveled to Malawi in September 2017 to provide engineering support and complete the ‘Bridge to Kapeya’ which was washed away during floods earlier this year. Restoration of the bridge was vital to restore the community's basic quality of life at Smile Malawi Children’s Orphanage; a charity founded and run by Railway Civil Engineer Elspeth Baecke. It currently houses 37 children from the age of 3 to 19.

SOUNDBITE (Chichewa): Vincent Gondwe, GTZ-ProBEC National Director: "Large institutions using rocket stoves have been saving between 80 - 90% of wood over the amount used on an open fire. Because of the stove's efficient combustion of wood there are also health benefits, as there is almost no unhealthy smoke compared to the unpleasant amounts in an open fire. Finally, using so much less wood is good for the environment." Mulanje, Malawi, July 22nd, 2008 8.Mid shot profile ProBEC trainer Francis Chagu...

Visit http://www.ewb.ca/water to learn more. We know that water is crucial to good health. In Malawi, EWB is contributing to the creation of long-term access to clean water. Although Malawi has many wells, as many as 35% are broken. In 2010, 30 EWB volunteers will improve the sustainability of Malawis wells, contributing to our overall goal of having 90% of water points working within five years. Accès à leau propre Nous savons que leau est essentielle à une bonne santé. Au Malawi, ISF contribue à létablissement dun accès à long terme à leau propre. Bien que le Malawi compte beaucoup de puits, pas moins de 35 % sont hors service.
