We're currently focused on repairing broken wells and drilling new wells in Kafue, Zambia. We've also hired a Zambian evangelist, Paster Yobe, who is preaching in the villages and helping us train local church leaders. You can view some of our completed projects below.
More details and pictures will be posted soon from our October 2012 trip.
Zambia - Chifweba John Village - Shimabala
This repair was for the Chifweba John Village. The village is small and comprised of widows and a few orphans. The repair has enabled the ladies to plant a small garden which will sustain them and possibly have extra vegetables to sell.

South Sudan - Mondi Village
Drilled 6/19/2011; Completed 6/24/2011
In June of 2011, we provided funding for Hope For Water's first new well which was drilled in Mondi village near Kajo Keji, South Sudan (see photos below). We’ve partnered with missionaries who has been drilling new wells in the region since 2008. Years of civil war have wiped out most of this new country's infrastructure and made new wells a priority. Most of the wells have been drilled near church plants and the organization focuses on keeping clean water flowing while building up local water committees to fund future repairs.
"My name is Modong Rejoice and I am 31 years old. I was married at the
age of 20 and I have four children. Since I was born, people from our
village have been drinking water out of shallow wells until CWAP (a
local drilling company) drilled a well for the village. After time
however, the well collapsed and again people were back to using the
shallow well water.
