Our Primary School Project ( NGO project ) will give hope to war orphans and vulnerable children in Omilling village in South Sudan. When the remote community has its own school, children will no longer have to walk eight hours round trip on foot to get an education.
The Challenge of Charity Work
Since the signing of the peace agreement in 2005, Omilling village has seen an influx of returning refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), including hundreds of war orphans and former child soldiers. The only school the village has to serve several thousand elementary-aged students is a small two-room temporary shack made out of twigs. The shack, used for early elementary, has no text books and no pit latrines (giving the school grounds an unpleasant odor). Once children pass their exams to start primary 4, they must trek eight hours round trip on foot through the wild bush to the nearest primary school, which is 70 kilometers away. Almost no families allow their daughters to make this trek.
Our Solution Via our NGO Project
Our Good Deeds Primary School charity Project will build permanent school facilities made with soil blocks and thatched roofs. The school facilities—providing free primary education to young children and literacy and life skills training to young adults—will be built in four phases. Phase one will consist of four classrooms, three modest teacher’s chalets (to house volunteer teachers from other regions in Sudan and outside the country), one pit latrine, and one store. Phase two will consist of four more classrooms, three more teacher’s chalets, one pit latrine, and one office. Phase three will consist of two teacher’s chalets, one pit latrine, and one library.

Potential Long-Term Impact Of our NGO Project
One benefit of our charity project is :enabling the children of Omilling to study at their own local school will give them a ticket out of poverty. Educated girls will eventually be able to give their own families a good start in life. Educated boys will be able to escape a family cycle of hard labor. This will ripple to their families and community.
Provide a Village with Drinking Water in South Sudan
Bringing drinking water to a remote mountain settlement will save children’s lives and keep girls in school. It also will free up women’s time, enabling them to pursue new opportunities and improve their families’ lives.
The Challenge of our Charity project
While water has always been a problem in Onura, the drought (affecting more than 20 million people across east Africa) has created a crisis. Villagers, mostly women and girls, must walk many kilometers every single day to collect every drop. This prevents many girls from going to school and many women from having enough time to earn a decent living. Most of the water they collect—from stagnant ponds, marshes, or ditches—is contaminated with parasites and bacteria. Unsafe water frequently kills children because their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery, and other water-borne disease.
Our Solution : our charity work
Our Good Deeds water charity project in Onura will fund the installation of two hand pumps, two stable wells, and a pipe delivering drinking water from free-flowing mountain springs. Each pump will provide 240 households (1,560 people total) with water from a new well. The wells will be constructed 5 kilometers apart to serve as many villagers as possible. One of the hand pumps will be installed in front of the village school, so children can collect water and go to school in one trip.
Potential Long-Term Impact
More than four out of five children will make it past the age of five. Women and girls will no longer have to spend up to four hours a day gathering water. Women will have more time to grow food and start businesses. Girls will be able to graduate from primary school and eventually give their own families a good start in life. This will ripple to their families and community.
