Child Legacy International has been repairing water wells since 2008; even though they have repaired more than 5,300 broken pumps in Malawi — which impacts over 10 million people (about 50% of the country’s population) — there is still a great need. Between 35%-40% of handpumps in the rural areas are non-functioning, meaning that millions of Malawians are having to find alternative water sources, and most of those sources are unprotected. We have seen it firsthand, visiting primary schools and hearing teachers report student death or poor attendance due to bad water. We feel that those who can help, should, and in the case of well repair, a little goes a long way.

Teams are forming!

From Mt. Kilimanjaro to Mt. Mulanje to the Andes to the Himalayas to the Rockies, Clean Water Climbs are scheduled throughout the year. We would love for you to join one! Or just join us on a trip to Malawi to see what this is all about. Please see the list of international trips under the CWC TRIPS tab at the top of the page.

Just one dollar provides clean water for 1.5 people for up to 5 years!

Your financial and prayerful support is what will make them successful! In doing so, you will also save entire villages from one of the world’s leading causes of death – waterborne disease.
