Understanding the impact of Co-op funded WASH projects in Southern Malawi

Itad, in association with Kadale Consultants

What changes have resulted from the Co-op’s investment in water projects in Malawi?

This was the central question for our assessment of the water projects funded by Co-op and implemented by United Purpose since 2014. These projects (among others) are funded through sales of Co-op’s own-label bottled water, with 3p from the sale of every litre supporting Co-op’s 10-year partnership with The One Foundation.

This report details the methodology used for the study, the findings and challenges identified during the assessment, situates the projects against the Sustainable Development Goals and draws conclusions.
