Thanks to your generosity, Global Water Challenge (GWC) and women for water are supporting Aqua Africa’s work to provide clean water to the community of Maiwut, South Sudan.
Together, we are working to bring clean water to 10,000 people, 2 schools and 1 health clinic. Powered by solar energy, the project will also supply electricity to the schools and health clinic.
We believe that water is a powerful catalyst for thriving communities and women's empowerment. South Sudan has long suffered from lack of access to basic services and gender-based violence. The project will allow more women and girls to attend school and pursue income-generating opportunities, supported by a sustainable service model that will provide water and energy for years to come.
As Aqua Africa awaits the arrival of drilling equipment, the project has made great strides towards the upcoming launch of construction! So far, a geophysical test was conducted to identify the best location for the wells and steel water tanks were successfully delivered to Maiwut.
Again, thank you for your support! Because of you, we are able to provide clean water access and electricity to South Sudanese who need it most.
