Southern Sudan Humanitarian (SSH) is implementing a program in southern Sudan that empowers families to raise their family income, have a clean water supply, and improve their nutrition. Improving these factors saves many young children from dying before they reach 5 years of age. We refer to this as a family agri-business. SSH is the mentor organization that provides training and microcredit to water-technician entrepreneurs and family agri-businesses. SSH uses a simple, low-cost system of pumps and wells that can be installed by the technicians and the families they help to provide a sufficient supply of water to grow crops during the dry season, crops that can be sold in local markets. The revenue from selling the crops raises the family income and makes for prosperous water-technician entrepreneurs. The wells and pumps also provide a convenient, ample supply of clean water for the family for drinking, cooking, washing, and bathing. This simple but effective technology has been used successfully in locations in South American and Africa for many years. The agri-business is self-sustaining because of the economic success of the families and entrepreneurs.
