Mission

Water for South Sudan delivers direct, transformative and sustainable quality-of-life service to the people of South Sudan by efficiently providing access to clean, safe water and improving hygiene practices in areas of great need.

Programs

From Fall 2005 to December, 2015, WFSS has drilled 259 successful wells with hand-pumping systems in remote villages. Serving over a quarter million South Sudanese daily, the wells provide fresh, potable water daily to fulfill basic human needs. 40 successful wells were completed in the last drilling season, 2014-15. Since 2014, hygiene education is also provided in each village in which we drill. With each new well many people receive fresh, safe, clean water located in close proximity to their villages. WFSS conducted its first formal well evaluation in 2015, visiting 80 wells. The evaluation team found all wells in good working order and producing clean water. Results of the well evaluation led to recommendations to improve the sustainability of the wells. WFSS has revised its well platform design to ensure greater sustainability of the platform. Our method of involving villagers in all aspects of well drilling and hygiene will continue, with increased village participation in fencing wells and ensuring their ability to continue producing water. WFSS has also drilled nine wells with Omaha, Nebraska-based Aqua-Africa, working across tribal lines to help develop the new country of South Sudan. WFSS continues to work on improving efficiencies as we empower the people of South Sudan to transform their lives.
