Stopping the Problem
A non-profit organization called Water For South Sudan was founded in 2003 to help empower the lives of especially women and children. The demanding need for water, makes getting an elementary education difficult. Each well that is constructed, allow for schools, clinics, and homes to be built around them. The easier water is to obtain, the easier it is for children to have the time to attend school.
The water for the well comes from underground aquifers. The depth of the aquifer keeps the water clean and uncontaminated. Since a borehole has to be dug, this can be a challenge, in very hot temperatures. The drilling rig requires water before it can drill for water. Water lubricates the drill and then flushes out the earth. Polymer is added to the well to keep it intact. Compressed air must be available. Soil must be tested over and over to observe and measure the progress.
