Sonda

We were warmly welcomed in the village because they never thought that at a certain time they will have a pump, they extended their gratitude to Wells for Zoë management for helping the poor in Malawi communities. 

Many people in the village are poor. They lack many things in their day to day living. People depend on farming and piece work jobs and this year people they grew more maize but they will have poor harvest because no fertilisers were applied due to high prices of fertiliser.  We told them the goodness of Tephrosia to improve their soil fertility and everyone showed the interest to grow more Tephrosia next year.
