When farming is your livelihood, access to #water can mean the difference between thriving and barely surviving. Mervis Kemphinda of Chinguwa, #Malawi knows this all too well. She said, "As farmers, water is the biggest challenge we face in this community." In this video, she talks about the huge difference a community well could make in the health of her family and her farm.
Today is #WorldWaterDay and we are excited to announce that we have a new generation of Heifer projects that are being designed specifically with water access and water quality in mind. Our work has always focused on hunger, poverty and environmental sustainability, and this focus will not change. It has become increasingly clear, however, that without community access and management of water, Heifer project participants simply cannot achieve their goals. We're working to change that.
