Giving more kids and families clean water

We are gearing up to bring more clean water to Old Fangak this year. Volunteers are making travel plans. Supplies are getting purchased. The school is almost finished. Great things are happening, including our plans to drill three more water wells in South Sudan. These wells will serve outlying areas of Old Fangak- including families and children who have never had access to clean water.

Thanks to your donations, we completed the school's first water well this winter. We are not stopping there. An Alaska graduate student who completed her thesis on water use in Old Fangak concluded this: there are many more families who desperately need access to clean water. This includes school children who will have access to water at school, but not at home.

We want to give these students and their families clean water. With clean water, mothers will not have to rely on dirty river water for their families... giving them true hope for a successful, healthy future.

With the proper funding, we will begin drilling in November and complete at three new water wells to serve more than a thousand people.

We will leave this project “open” so that our GlobalGiving donors have the option of continuing to help bring life-saving clean water to South Sudan. Thank you for your continued support!
