Muon Village, Warrap State, South Sudan

“I am 31-year-old and a mother of 5 children where three kids are girls and two kids are boys. I was recently recruited by WESI Organization, where I attended the first training. The second training where I shall graduate is being awaited as scheduled in April next month. It’s indeed a great privilege that I have just received the tools for well repair with some spare parts, and I am now repairing the first well through critical observation and guidance of the WESI Staff of the Lietnhom Field Office. I have successfully repaired Muon well with my team-mate Mr. Deng Baak which marks the turning point of our wells’ repair in our location. We are fully equipped and mandated to provide clean drinking water to our people and shall presumably receive some money from the community through repair and exchange fees. We have installed the two new pipes and cylinder to this well which were confirmed damaged. Therefore, the total amount of money we received from this well is 60,000 SSP (repair fee = 12,000 SSP, two pipes = 32,000 SSP & cylinder = 16 000 SSP), which is equivalent to 150 USD, and the water management committee cooperatively collected the fees.”

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.
