Water Wells for South Sudanese Women

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (W.A.S.H.) was created to provide fresh drinking water for villagers in South Sudan. Lessening the time to transport water means young children, specifically girls, can go to school. This also allows women with time to work to help pay for their children’s education. By installing water wells, South Sudan’s water issues and gender inequality issues are simultaneously addressed.

Why should you donate? How do donations help?

South Sudanese need our help to obtain clean drinking water. The money you donate will help pay for new water wells. Once water wells are installed, women will not have to travel as far to retrieve water for their families, which gives them time to focus on their education. Even one dollar can help pay for more water wells. Please donate today to improve the lives of South Sudanese families.

Research Overview

South Sudan, a small country in central Africa, gained independence from Sudan in 2011 after a civil war. The civil war broke out when the President and Vice President failed to create a peace agreement (Radon). Some significant problems South Sudanese face currently include women’s rights and education and waterborne diseases. Women struggle and fight for gender equality and equal access to education. Also, water wells are often unregulated, which increases the risk of waterborne diseases, easily spread throughout the country. An organization called Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) helps provide them with clean water by building new water wells.
