Introduction

When we first met with elders of Alel Chok, they spoke of the difficulties of a nomadic life, one they would not have chosen had there been any other way. Without a secure source of water, their people couldn’t settle their families, build their homes, plant their food or educate their children.


Their only option was to keep moving into an uncertain future. 


In 2010 the Obakki Foundation chose to drill the first water well in Alel Chok and it continues to hold a place of significance. Less than a year after receiving clean water, the community was unrecognizable - a village had sprung to life around the hand pump. Homes and a small church were built, and abundant crops were thriving in the bright sun. Alel Chok continues to thrive; everyone’s health has greatly improved, the children are in school and the elders can sit in the shade of a favourite tree knowing that they are finally home.

"Water has allowed gardens to grow, which has created unity in our community." - Gabriel, Alel Chok

IMPACT

A village as bright as it's agriculture.

Children are at school, elders are healthy and the community is thriving.

Alel Chok received Obakki Foundation's 1st hand pump in South Sudan.

The village had been forced to abandon their homes because of danger in the area.

We installed an agriculture system as Alel Chok was so active in using water for more.
