Summary

Water for South Sudan, Inc. will build a well with hand pump in the new country of South Sudan to bring the first fresh, clean water to a village. Girls & women will no longer have to walk miles each day to get water they need.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Each day hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese drink unclean water they have spent hours walking to gather. For their very survival they are forced to drink from these contaminated waters and often become ill. What water is available to the mostly destitute people of South Sudan is most often found in shallow wells or surface ponds, often many hours' walk from home villages. The water collected in these arduous journeys is often contaminated with parasites and cholera.

How will this project solve this problem?

Having fresh clean water every day eliminates many causes of disease, and brings greater health to all, especially children. Not having to walk for miles each day allows more freedom for girls and women. Girls can often attend school. Women can create small gardens and cottage industries.

Potential Long Term Impact

Water brings life to these villages. People can remain in their villages year-round. Homes and schools can be built; markets spring up. Medical clinics can be established. Water for South Sudan, Inc. estimates each new well serves at least 1,000 - 1,500 people.
