Sharing Resources

So, I really just am so amazed how resourceful Malawians are. I am guessing it is how resourceful most Africans are, but … my experience was in Malawi.


This picture depicts water being transported through a homemade tube made from two soda bottles. RiseMalawi staff were planning for the youth activities for the day ahead, and thus, the contraption to complete the work of collecting water from the tap.

“Africans bend what little they have to their will everyday. Using creativity, they overcome Africa’s challenges. Where the world sees trash, Africa recycles. where the world seeks junk, Africa sees rebirth.” –William Kamkwamba (Malawian, and coauthor, The Boy who Harnessed the Wind)
