Water, Tools and Seeds for Mozambican Communities



This Mozambican project provides Matola Gare's community clean water reducing disease while agricultural seeds and tools allow people to better feed themselves and their families.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mozambique is one of the world's poorest countries. No clean water facilities exist in the project area which relies on agriculture for sustenance. Matola Gare is 15 long km from the nearest town with the nearest water source (well) 10km away. For older people particularly this seriously challenges their access to water given difficulties of mobility and strength. AMAI's work will directly benefit 300 people in a wider community of 3000.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our project will build 1 new well while repairing 3 others providing access to water while offering training in water purification systems and maintenance. Provision of farming tools and seeds means more nutritious food for families.

Potential Long Term Impact

AMAI works towards healthier older women and men in the community through the provision of clean water and improving food production. Older women's access to land will be improved through advocacy work and training.
