In countries like South Sudan, access to clean water is crucial for survival in the dry season. In the rainy season, clean water helps keep the community safe from diseases like cholera. A solar-powered water system in Yambio has transformed water access for children and families in the remote town.
By using solar energy, the system pumps treated water from a borehole to different communities, schools and the main health centre.
Now that children have access to safe water close to home, they are not only healthier, but have more time to go to school, play with friends and have a childhood.
