Nuba Water Project is happy to share its mission and experiences with school, church, and other community groups. We believe raising awareness is just as important as raising funds. Presentations can be customized for all age groups and are interactive and visual, using photos and video clips. They include some or all of the following themes and topics:
- Nuba Water Project: Mission, Projects, Experiences
- Walk for Sudan: What it is and how you can get involved, including decorating water containers to symbolize the daily walk for water in Sudan
- Water Issues in Sudan
- Current crisis in the Nuba Mountains
- Life in Sudan – what is it like to live in one of the poorest countries in the world?
- Social Activism: How to Make a Difference in the World
- Adapting to Change: Facing the Daunting Task of Helping People in the Nuba Mountains
- Other ideas? Please let us know.

Elkhart Elementary – February 22, 2012
Fourth graders at Elkhart Elementary in Aurora welcomed us on February 22nd with open arms and sat in rapt attention as they learned about water issues and life in Sudan. They were very impressive with their enthusiasm, manners, and higher level questions and are at work on plans for a follow-up project to apply what they’ve learned.
After seeing video clips of kids in Sudan, one 4th grader commented: “It makes me wonder why we whine so often when we have so much. They don’t have very much and they look happy and don’t complain.” Indeed, the people in Sudan may be poor, but their lives are rich in culture and love of family and tradition.
