Kwaria Village is an impoverished community in South Sudan, a new country gaining independence in 2011 after a long-running civil war.  The people living there are the Toposa people, an ethnic group who are either herders or subsistence farmers.   Christianity has taken hold, with an active discipleship movement and more than ten bible study groups being formed in neighboring villages. For water, the villagers depend on a river that is 1.5 miles away, but it is dry in many months of the year. In the dry season, they have to dig shallow wells in the sand to get water. The water sources are shared with animals and are dirty and contaminated. Typhoid and cholera are common in the villages. This project will provide clean drinking water, reducing illnesses and improving the economy.
