Give a village Drinking Water in South Sudan!

This project has received a total of $10,597. Only $1,228- is needed to reach a budget goal of $11,827. To ensure the on-going success of the implementation, the grant was split into two parts. The trustees approved, and released $5,750-, to implement part one.

The water pump well is installed at Mairo school yard. This provided clean drinking water to 502 out of 2018 students daily for the last three months since completion, and it has also increased school enrollment among girls, and the  daily attendance goes to 875 pupils. Water is a basic human right!

The project could not be started soon after funds were received due to these reasons:
Lesson Learned
Funds were sent in small amount each month from our donors. We kept these funds in a restrict fund- bank account until it accumulates to $5,750 (part–one).

This created frustration among some of the beneficiaries: some don’t understand why money is sent in small amount: others believed USA is a rich nation in the world - and is a piece of cake for an American to fund Onura water project – and they don’t see why the cause is not funded at once. This project will be phased out by end of 2012 or before when the budget goal is reached.
