Lives of people in Dowa are no longer the same following the coming in of Rhema Institute for Development, a local NGO which focuses into water and sanitation, girls empowerment, nutrition, agriculture and economic empowerment.
The NGO has so far drilled more than 20 boreholes in Dowa only giving Malawians opportunity to enjoy clean water.

But speaking when handing over a borehole in the area of Group Village Headman Kalisha in the district , Rhema Executive Director, Innocent Semu said he was so happy that his organisation is busy taking part in changing lives of people.
Semu said Malawi cannot achieve sustainable development goals if access to water is limited.
Semu said Malawi needs people to have access to have access to water because water brings good health.
Rhema has been implementing these projects with support from Tom Herrings who is Chief Executive Officer of Hope For a child, UK.

Just recently, Rhema Institute for Development commissioned an ambitious K80million  piped water project at Dowa Turn off Trade Centre in Dowa district.

Semu said for a long time people in the area have been drinking contaminated water together with livestock.

Semu said for the first time in this country, people will be using water credit cards provided to draw water from the taps in their homes and water kiosks put up at Dowa turn off. “This is technology at its best because we can switch off the tap while at the office and monitor water levels using laptops and phones,” He said.

Semu was accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Local Government who is also Member of Parliament for Dowa South East Constituency Halima Daud.

During the launch , Daudi said the piped water project at Dowa Turn off and surrounding communities will help people with easy access to clean and safe water thereby reducing water borne diseases.

A multi million water project which Rhema has been championing at Dowa Turn off in the area of Traditional Authority Mkukula started last year with laying of pipes and digging the drainages.

Currently thousand of people there are benefitting from the project.
