Access to clean drinking water is a basic human right, yet many communities in Malawi are still suffering from the lack of this essential resource. Organizations and funders are investing millions every year into water infrastructure to ensure that everyone has a reliable source of water. However, poor construction quality, inadequate supervision, and limited accountability are all key challenges that are contributing to the non-functionality of water points in communities consequently leaving them right where they were before. With nothing!
The lack of access to clean drinking water is a major social injustice that must be addressed urgently to protect the health, well-being, and dignity of all individuals and communities in Malawi.
