Water

Implementing clean water wells helps meet one of the greatest felt needs in South Sudan and deepens Every Village's credibility with communities. Disease plagues many villages, directly resulting from inaccessible clean water. In fact, just over half of South Sudan's population has access to water that won't make them sick. Many women are forced to walk miles for water, inhibiting them from attending church and getting an education. But we're working to change that. We've spent years establishing an underlying infrastructure by drilling water wells. There's still a need for more, but we've also started addressing the systemic issues behind the shortage – that is, access to spare parts and training. And so we partner with local communities to give them the tools they need to properly maintain their supply of clean water for good.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In a nation where 3 out of 4 people can't read or write, radio is the best way to reach the population. Our community radio stations broadcast gospel content (Bible stories, local preaching, church music) and community development programs (health, education, agriculture, social issues) in the local dialects. We then distribute solar-powered radios to our areas of broadcast. Each radio reaches an average of 7-10 people with the gospel. The three stations currently operating in our radio network reach about 1 out of every 4 South Sudanese, and we're continuing to grow the impact as we build more stations in our network and distribute more solar-powered radios to listeners.

Population(s) Served
Adults

If we want to see a nation built for Christ, we will need to see a people built for Christ. South Sudan will only grow into a peaceful and prosperous nation when its leaders lead with righteousness and its people have the resources and opportunities to improve their society. This is why we invest in the people of South Sudan first and foremost. We do this by focusing on job creation and training. Our water, radio, and support staff are developing the skills and character needed to become leaders of their nation. We fly in technical experts, Bible trainers, and volunteers on short-term trips to pour into the South Sudanese. Each trip builds upon the last leaving a cumulative impact.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
