Water for South Sudan

Impact Report on Water for South Sudan’s Well Drilling program

Program activities
Water for South Sudan drills wells for remote villages in the Bahr el Ghazal region of South Sudan. The placement of the wells is determined in collaboration with government and community leaders.



$20 gives an impoverished South Sudanese person access to clean water.


Water for South Sudan collected data on outcomes of the population after the program. To estimate the change attributable to the program, Water for South Sudan made an educated guess as to how the population would have fared without the program.

Data source
Data was collected through interviews with village members and feedback from WFSS field staff who visit well sites.

Attribution method
WFSS conjectures that only 20% of currently served individuals would receive water wells without our program. Larger NGOs in South Sudan do not typically go to remote villages as WFSS does due to distance and costs.

This report was created by Water for South Sudan with self-reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers September 2017 to August 2018.
