Chambala School, Malawi

Engineers Without Borders have completed the implementation stage

The Chambala School in the centrally situated province Kasungu of Malawi is now being supplied with water and energy. After the successful exploration and planning, the implementation stage of the project maintained by the Engineers Without Borders regional group Bochum, is now finished as well.

In cooperation with local well drilling companies, a well was erected in the school's proximity, while a solar panel was attached to the roof of the school, which was then taken into operation. This way, the measure has an immediate impact on the health of the people and the quality of classes. This is due to the fact that the water acquisition is no longer performed by foot with buckets, as well as during class time, and the pupils can be taught with the help of electric lighting, after the early sunset.  

In the future, further improvements and the expansion of toilets and washing opportunities are planned in order to sustainably improve the situation.

ZPP will support the Engineers Without Borders regional group Bochum in 2018 as well, while furthermore wishing the forces on location the best of success with their work!
