As you read this, children in Darfur villages in Sudan walk for hours across the desert in search of water. They are missing school as the need to collect water is more important than education. Water is near these villages, but it is underground - if only families could afford a hand pump. Kids for Kids is determined to help by building clean water handpumps as close to villages as possible. Please will you help us provide clean water to children?

Imagine you are 9 years old. Every day you miss school because you have to walk for 7 hours across scorching sand to fetch the water you and your younger brothers and sisters need to stay alive. You are thirsty, you are scared - what if you get lost in a sandstorm? You reach the hand pump and have to queue. Finally, you face the long walk back - this time with a heavy Jerry Can. If only you had a pump in your village - there is water, but it is too deep underground to dig for. And now, COVID.

Kids for Kids is the only charity dedicated to helping the children of Darfur. We have adopted 110 villages so far, helping over 550,000 people. Among our many grassroots projects, we install clean water hand pumps in this troubled region where many other charities refuse to work or are not allowed to operate. We fence in our hand pumps to keep animals away to keep the water clean and add a trough outside the fence so that they too can drink! We provide water carts and jerrycans to store water.

We train village committees and set up local funding mechanisms so that repairs can be carried out and the water can keep flowing long-term. This is real sustainable change. Once the hand pump works, children can no longer walk for water and can go to school. This transforms their entire future. Families can plant trees and grow vegetables, breaking the cycle of starvation and lifting them out of poverty. Your gift of water truly is the gift of life - long term - for children in Darfur.
