In 2012 Obakki drilled a water well upon the dry, arid land of Adol in South Sudan. It was a community in desperate need of water, plagued by illness and malnutrition. At this time, education, agriculture and community growth were simply inaccessible.
Four months later we visited the community for a routine project report and were astonished by the progress achieved in such a short amount of time. The people of Adol had taken the gift of water and turned it into prosperity. The villagers worked amongst lush green gardens yielding nourishment and livelihood. There had been several modest homes erected since our last visit - tidy and lived-in, where families had begun to settle.
Adel had become a home, not just a watering station – a place for people to grow, raise their children, celebrate and achieve. Water was just the start for this community and now we’re using Adol as a model for other villages to show the people of South Sudan what is possible - to empower.
