About
Ernest Chakwera and Nancy Machera are the founders of Project 7840, a social venture that aims to provide safe drinking water to the rural Ntchisi community. The team will build a wind turbine with scrap metal to pump up water from an existing well. This water will then be stored and purified in a water tank the team will construct by upcycling discarded water bottles and combining them with water-proof cement.
