Wells for Zoë – Water for Life

We are an Irish voluntary organisation, founded in 2005 and working mainly in Northern Malawi, focused on enabling the rural poor to access clean, safe, drinking water. Working with women’s self-help clusters, a package including preschools, adult education and conservation farming, this bottom-up approach has a sustainable and life changing impact on communities.

CLEAN WATER CHANGES EVERYTHING

Some of our Volunteers

These interactions are why I will always be a supporter of Wells for Zoë and the Coynes. Their commitment, passion and focus are inspirational. They are the constants, the campaigners, the supporters and the champions of the people of Northern Malawi. But what I liked the most was their mantra, which was evidently put to practice every day – “we give them a hand up, not a handout”. This is the future of Malawi, the only way they can move forward. As the Irish saying goes "Go leor déanta, neart eile le déanamh!"
