Nuba Water Project

CLEAN WATER A bore hole well is nearby, but it is broken. Water so close yet so far. $100 = one water well repair kit transported to the Nuba Mountains. EDUCATION War and government attacks prevent many Nuba students from attending school. We continue to support Nuba refugees who are studying agriculture, engineering, and public health. We also have provided educational assistance for secondary school students in Gidel within the Nuba Mtns.

Description

Nuba Water Project coordinates the purchase and delivery of water well repair parts to the Nuba Mountains. Many wells throughout the Nuba Mountains and Sudan are broken and inoperable, making clean water inaccessible to the people there. By providing and transporting repair parts from Juba to the Nuba Mountains, we enable the people to make simple repairs and replacement of parts, thereby helping themselves with access to clean water.

Evidence of Program's Success

Program success would be apparent to Nuba Water Project via the certainty that the water well repair part kits have been purchased and delivered to the Nuba Mountains.

Beyond that, increased self-sufficiency on the part of the Nuba people as they provide access to clean water for their villages will evidence the success of the water well repair project.

Description

Nuba Water Project supports the education of Nuba refugees who have fled to South Sudan, Uganda or Kenya and would be unable to attend school otherwise due to the crisis in the Nuba Mountains. This financial support comes in the form of tuition, boarding school fees, books, and living expenses.

Evidence of Program's Success

Program success will be evident as students graduate from secondary school. That in itself is an achievement for students who had no way to attend school. In addition, an even higher level of success will be achieved as students are accepted into, attend, and eventually graduate from college.

Glario, an engineering university student attending school in Kenya, reports to us regularly with information regarding his classes, test scores, and progress. We are also supporting him with a monthly stipend as he has no family to help with his living arrangements. We recently provided him with a personal computer to better allow him to complete his classwork.

Angelo and Rania began their university education in the fall of 2016. Angelo started his study in agricultural engineering at Catholic University, Wau, South Sudan. He has now moved to Kampala in Uganda for his university work, as the crisis in Wau, South Sudan, had caused classes to be cancelled frequently. We are supporting him with a monthly stipend, as well as paying his tuition and fees for his education.

Rania has been attending university in Kampala, Uganda. Her course of study is public/community health. Our support for her will consist of tuition, fees, and living expenses. She lives with family and her children, while her husband serves as a soldier in Sudan without pay.

Mary Kuku has also requested our help with a certification program in public health that she is attending in Kampala. We continue to assist her on a term by term basis with a $500 grant.

Program success will be dependent on the follow through of each of these students and their reporting to the board regarding their results.
