Providing Basic Needs in South Sudan

The Water for South Sudan project delivers direct, transformative, and sustainable quality-of-life service to the people of South Sudan by providing access to clean, safe water and improving hygiene and sanitation practices in areas of great need.

Since 2017, the students at Sage Ridge School have raised money to support this important cause, inspired after reading A Long Walk to Water. Last spring, our students organized the 3rd annual Walk for Water Fundraiser. Students solicited sponsorships as they pledged to carry two 1-gallon jugs of water around our campus on foot for one hour. In three years students raised over $18,000 in support of the Water for South Sudan project. Our students fully embodied their commitment to using their knowledge and resources to make a difference in the world. 

Update March 2020:

Our well was dug! All the hard work and waiting is over and Sage Ridge School now has a well in South Sudan with our name on it. See the blog announcement for the full story
