Nuba Water Project

CLEAN WATER A bore hole well is nearby, but it is broken. Water so close yet so far. 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 outside Sudan.

Martha Riley, CEO/Executive Director
Start Date: 2009

Martha's interest in Sudan began several years ago when she and her high school students raised money to help build schools through Project Education Sudan. Martha has since traveled twice to Sudan to assess educational needs and conduct teacher workshops. She retired in 2010 from a 33 year career in teaching and now volunteers her time with Nuba Water Project. In addition, she is the event director for the annual Walk for Sudan, which raises thousands of dollars each year for water projects and relief aid in the Nuba Mountains.

Martha has a BA from the College of William and Mary and an MA from the University of Colorado. She is married to Steve and has a grown son and daughter, as well as a son-in-law and granddaughter.
