Hope Village, Warap State, South Sudan

“My name is Angelina Abuk Manut. I am a 25-year-old mother of two children. I am very glad to share my experiences with you. Hope well with GPS coordinates 8.610562 and 28.47042 is owned by Hope Secondary School, but the school administration is jointly sharing it with the community. The number of households sharing the borehole with Hope Secondary School is seventy-two. The number of students in Hope Secondary School is more than five hundred. Hope borehole hosts approximately 1000 people who benefit from clean drinking water. Also, there are a number of goats, sheep, and cows that drink water from Hope Well. The borehole has experienced a slow flowing of water when pumped. It takes time and energy for water to come. This issue continued for weeks until we called WESI technicians to come and diagnose the problem. They have disassembled it today and discovered that one pipe is damaged with serious leakage, which made the water flow inadequate. The pipe was replaced by WESI technicians in our area.”

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
