Water For South Sudan
About four years ago, our then Interact District Governor, AJ Jackson and her amazing team, helped bring a new project to our Rotary District focused on raising money to build water wells in South Sudan. Together with Interact students and Rotarians from around District 5320 and also the world, these amazing Interact students raised thousands of dollars for the project.
To give you an idea of how our Interact impacts the world, three years later we received this picture from South Sudan thanking our Rotary District for helping build the water wells. Here’s a video of Salva Dut, one of the “Lost Boys”, sharing his needs and vision with the Dana Hills Interact students and guests (that’s AJ doing the introduction!) Click here to watch the video
