About Us

Water for South Sudan, Inc. is a Rochester, NY, USA-based charitable organization currently operating in South Sudan, Africa. Our mission is to deliver sustainable quality-of-life services to and with the people of South Sudan by efficiently providing access to clean, safe water, and improving hygiene and sanitation practices in areas of great need.

We have drilled 457 wells to date, have rehabbed 167 wells, and have conducted 433 hygiene trainings. Locations are selected by the local tribal leaders. Members of the village are chosen to be trained by Water for South Sudan in the operation and maintenance of the wells. Once operational, a well becomes the property and responsibility of the village, empowering the people in the development of their own stable and healthy community. Our goal is the transformation of lives - bringing life out of the desert.
