How to Help

A drop in the bucket is what we're looking for

Aqua-Africa’s mission depends on the financial support we receive from our donors. Tackling the water shortage in South Sudan requires a ground swell of support and contributions of all sizes are welcomed and appreciated. Whether a donation amounts to a drop, a bucket, or a reservoir, it represents another step in achieving our goals.


Aqua-Africa employs a judicious selection process to ensure the villages they work with will benefit the most from their synthesis of aid and development. At present, the South Sudanese central government assists in identifying villages that have already taken steps toward developmental progress. As a result, the selected sites transcend tribal, linguistic, and political boundaries. We’re working towards a day when we can all help one another.
