  1. Hi Helen,
    Two weeks ago I was in Malawi leading a Church Leader training conference. The host of the conference was Duncan Nyozani. ( Duncan contacted me this morning asking for help in getting a well dug in a village of 2,000 people.He had gone there to preach and their well was almost dry. My organization Equipping Leaders International, does not work in this area but I am trying to help this village by putting Duncan in contact with an org that does.
    Please let me know how to make application. I believe Duncan can be trusted having spent a week with him and seeing the fruits of his labors in organizing the conference that pulled togeher 330 church leaders.
    Awaiting your reply,

    • Hi Charles;
      Sorry I haven’t responded earlier. We work on the construction and installation of the biosand water filter in households in rural areas and we teach sanitation and hygiene. We do not at this time drill wells. I think that you might try Water For People or Unicef in Lilongwe.
      Take care

    • Hi Jennifer;
      Yes, Father Rafael Mponda was instrumental in getting the Project started in Malawi. I met him on my first trip to Malawi in 2006. He had been to Calgary, Canada to learn how to make the biosand filter. How do you know Rafael?

  4. Hi, I am looking for distributer od water purifiers in Malawi but could not find one. Can you guys help me and send contacts of any distributor of domestic water purifier.

    • Hi;
      I am not sure what kind of water filters you are wanting to distribute. We construct and install concrete biosand water filters to villagers. Do you have a filter you want to distribute to local stores? Are you selling a filter?

      • I want to distribute to the wholesaler. I want to sell water filter that works on gravity.
