The Malawi Project has sent three BUV’s to Malawi. The Basic Utility Vehicles are manufactured in Indianapolis, Indiana by the Institute of Affordable Transportation. These units are the brainchild of Will Austin, and have been in production since 1998.
A unit was sent to the Namikango Mission in Southern Malawi where it can often be observed hauling furniture to various locations on their 85 acre campus. It is also being used to carry firewood from a controlled forest to a location near the clinic where guardians can cook for the patients. The BUV will also help moving supplies or staff from various work locations.
