In a little hut, in a little village, Alice Sayo was born into a large Maasai family. Through efforts of her mother and elder brother she was able to attend school and became a teacher. Her passion is to give other Maasai girls the chance for a brighter future. Without the opportunity to attend school, Maasai girls are married at a young age, and their opportunities are limited. Alice attended a teacher exchange program in the United States through the US State Department and convinced the teachers and students of James Madison University, VA to support her dream of creating a school for Masaai girls. Nasaruni Academy for Maasai Girls is the beginning of her dream. As Nasaruni grows, other donors, have helped support the school. H2O for Life staff and volunteers have visited the school, and see the potential that Nasaruni is bringing to the surrounding Maasai communities.

Our South Sudanese projects are quite unique from our others in the fact that they are not typically built at a school. These projects are built in villages with the plan that a school will come around that well in the near future. The reason for this difference from our other projects is that South Sudan in its war-torn state is in desperate need for even the basic infrastructures to begin new communities. These South Sudan projects are not named because they are not typically schools yet at this point in the process. They will simply be a community well.

Severely deficient rainfall creates a chronic drought situation in Thar trapping the region under great poverty and deprivation. Food and water shortages are very common causing poverty and malnutrition. In rural areas health and nutrition needs are often neglected and less prioritized especially for females. Lack of awareness and lack of adequate healthcare are two critical challenges in the region. Education and health facilities are limited in the desert and develop the lowest statistical data nationwide. India has a goal for 100% enrollment of children and to ensure the completion of primary and secondary education by all boys and girls under the Sustainable Development targets for 2030, guaranteeing equal access to opportunities for access to quality technical and vocational education for everyone.
