ONE DROP

All profits from OneBox go to our partner project OneDrop. Both projects are

social enterprise affiliated with Enactus Sheffield.

Enactus Sheffield is a student-led organisation that exists within the University of Sheffield. Their work

focuses on transforming the lives of people in need through the power of business. This is accomplished

by setting up social enterprises that provide employment and products which bring both social and

environmental benefits across the world.

One Drop is an enterprise which acts in Malawi, operated by students in Sheffield. In the past, One Drop

developed, made, and sold drip irrigation systems in association with SURCOD in Malawi. This created a

business opportunity in one of the worlds’ most disadvantaged nations, generating employment and

teaching business skills.

The system itself was designed to be connected to a water butt and feed water directly to plants’ roots,

thus minimising the amount of water lost through evaporation or wasteful run-off. Water is precious in the

arid conditions of rural Malawi; therefore, using it more efficiently is crucially important. Overall, this

project improved crop yields for lots of subsistence farmers.

These drip irrigation devices were designed to be easy-to-use, simple to maintain, and enduring, thereby

improving food security of the region. We are delighted that this project is now self-sustainable; we are

proud to have passed it onto SURCOD, who are continuing to implement this independently.

One Drop now has an exciting new objective. Working with the organisation DAMRA (Development Action

for Marginalised Rural Areas), we are producing a handbook for distribution within the region of Rumphi,

Malawi, to promote more sustainable farming practices, and water and soil conservation techniques.

Disseminating knowledge in this area to all members of society (including women) is vital, because areas

such as Rumphi are increasingly vulnerable to unpredictable climate change. Spreading awareness to all is

crucial to meeting the requirements of today whilst protecting the needs of future society. We relish this

new partnership with DAMRA, and share their goals of achieving local food security, improving household

income levels, tackling gender inequality, and recognising the role of youths in reaching sustainable

development.
