Your Donations in Action

One thing that sets us apart from other charities (aside from ensuring that 100% of all donations go directly to our projects) is how profoundly we connect our donors to the villages and people they are supporting.

When you buy a scarf, you can sign up to receive regular updates on the village that will receive clean water because of your purchase. Another example is when someone purchases a specific product or item for a village, such as packages of gardening seeds or a visit from a hand pump mechanic.

On Treana’s recent trip she was excited to deliver a bicycle to Alel Chok, a village that holds a special place in her heart.

One of the first villages where we drilled a water well, Alel Chok has successfully expanded their gardens to sell extra produce at markets. They had been using a dilapidated bike to transport their crops, but it finally broke beyond repair and it looked like they would be forced to abandon this initiative.

Bikes are extremely hard to come by in South Sudan and, as you can see, people were thrilled to see a new one.

Our work is always 100% transparent and examples like this demonstrate how you can be sure that your donation is going directly to those who need it most.

Luckily a donor purchased a bike and Treana was able to bring it personally.
