Manzi ndi moyo - Water is life
Makolekole is dedicated to improving access to clean water for communities in the Luangwa Valley region of Zambia. By providing this foundational resource, we empower people to strengthen their communities and realize their potential.
CLEAN, SAFE WATER IS A LINCHPIN ISSUE. FROM HEALTHCARE TO EDUCATION FOR WOMEN, EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON IT.
We work with communities in the Luangwa valley to bring clean, safe water closer to home. By drilling simple, durable boreholes and ensuring people in the community are equipped to use and maintain them, we establish a water source that will be reliable for years to come. All of our work is done in partnership with local leaders who bring crucial knowledge of their communities' needs to the conversation. Over the next six years, we plan to drill 500 wells, laying the groundwork for the people we serve to improve their health, educational prospects, community resilience, and more.
