The administration of Canon Benaiah Poggo College in Southern Sudan is grateful to the donor for the offer of the
borehole you have drilled in the College.
This offer has solved the problem of shortage of water for the students and staff. It has also solved delays in preparing meals for the students due to congestion in the water points. It has supplemented the use of water from the streams which are stagnant during dry seasons.
The borehole is not only benefiting people living in and around the college, but it will serve
generations of Southern Sudanese who will come for training here.
We therefore appreciate and thank those who contributed generously toward this well. May the
Almighty God bless your work as you continue to provide water to other communities that are in scarcity and need of clean water.

From its independence in 1956 until 2005, Sudanese were caught in ongoing civil warfare between the north and south, resulting in extreme violence and devastation, and what humanitarian organizations call a "lost generation."
Due to its war-torn past, the country lacks almost every part of what modern society considers a necessity:
access to basic health care services, educational opportunities, electricity and infrastructure, a working economy, and most of all - clean water. The country is rebuilding, but is starting from almost nothing. One recent report indicated there were no more than six miles of paved roads in all of South Sudan. (Source: WHI)

The Water Project, Inc. is proud to be in partnership with Water Harvest International (WHI), a U.S.-based Christian safe water non-profit with an
operational base in Southern Sudan.
Between 2005 and 2007, several members of the Radler family visited both North and South Sudan on mission trips. Realizing the deep impact that clean water can have not only on a community but also how it can aid in spreading the Gospel, The Radler Foundation decided to start and fund a water drilling operation based in Kajo Keji County, South Sudan.
In May of 2008, as planning and development was taking shape, the Lord blessed the Foundation and brought Stephen Huber on board as WHI's first employee. Stephen moved to Sudan in July of 2008 to set up operations in-country.

With your help, fresh-water wells are being placed at schools
in Southern Sudan for about $4,000 each.
Access to clean, safe water has a profound impact on both students and the surrounding communities. Students are relieved from walking miles for water which is dirty and diseased. They have more time in class, and health improves dramatically as the children learn the importance of good hygiene and sanitation in addition to having abundant clean drinking water.
Wells at schools change lives forever.
