GlobalGiving Funded Well Drilled - Final Report

This is the third well sponsored by GlobalGiving.
This is the third well sponsored by GlobalGiving.

Water for South Sudan is pleased to report that the well sponsored by GlobalGiving was drilled this season. This is the third well sponsored by GlobalGiving and yours was our 328th. WFSS Founder Salva Dut, our Board of Directors, and our staff are all grateful to GlobalGiving and to everyone who contributed to this project.

Your well was installed in the village of Lil-Miir in Arek-Rek, Aweil East, South Sudan. The village chief is Nhom-Chot Lueth Duomo. The GPS coordinates are 8.73496427.450667. Farming and livestock are the main sources of livlihood for people in this region. The primary crops are: maize, sorghum, groundnuts, and sesame. There is very little infrastructure and few roads in the area. There are still many villages in Aweil East without access to fresh water and open defacation is the norm. 

WFSS also provided hygiene training in the village. Hygiene education is now being offered in every village where we work. Our model is "train the trainer." In each village eight representatives, four men and for women, are chosen to be trained. They help the WFSS team to identify the issues in the village and the training addresses those specific issues. The village representatives go out to train others in their community. When people practice good hygiene it impacts sustainability of the well. 

The WFSS team in South Sudan is busy wrapping up the 2018 drilling season before the rainy season ensues. The drilling team has installed 36 new wells, bringing our total wells to 340. The rehab team has revisited 19 older wells,  rebuilding the cement platforms around the wells. Each village where WFSS worked this season has received hygiene training.   

Each donor's gift to this project has made possible the gift of fresh, clean water to the people of Lil-Miir. Thank you again for your support.
