Community Profile

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.

God’s blessing,

REV. Mono John
Principal

Project Type

Borehole and Hand Pump

Girls and women walk long distances for water when safe water is very often right under their feet! Underground rivers, called aquifers, often contain a constant supply of safe water – but you have to get to it. No matter what machine or piece of equipment is used, all drilling is aiming for a borehole that reaches into an aquifer. If the aquifer has water - and after the well is developed - we are able to pull water to the surface utilizing a hand-pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.


The borehole is not only benefiting people living in and around the college, but it will serve generations of Southern Sudan.
