We are a 501-c-3 Charitable Organization and International NGO with the Republic of South Sudan. All donations receive a tax receipt.

Drilling A Water Well - A Must for Clean Water, Sanitation and Construction. A Life Giving Human Right. We are working with Atem Garang Juowei, a Lost Boy of Sudan who is now a proud American citizen from Sioux Falls, SD, drill a water well and build a Library Education Center in the village of his birth.


Library Education Center Building Project and Village Outreach.
Upcoming Mission Trip: February - April 2017.

COST: $14,000.00 needed to drill one (1) water well.

Your charitable contribution and support is needed and greatly appreciated!For donation by mail and further inquiries please see contact information below.

Unite with us in this important outreach and development initiative, as we bring hope to the Lost Boys and to their families back in their native motherland. On our next upcoming trip to Paliau Village, South Sudan (January-May 2013) our goal is to drill the water well, purchase the loader truck, bring medical supplies, and lay the foundation for the library education center. Your help is needed to make this a reality! Individual project descriptions below.

MEET PALIAU VILLAGE - Pics from our Mission Trips.

United in a mission of solidarity, together we make this project possible. Donation information below. Mary's Project is a 501 (c) 3 Charitable Organization. All donations are tax deductible.

It is a MUST and life giving to drill a water well in Paliau Village at the upcoming construction site of the Library Education Center Building Project (January 2013 groundbreaking). The water well is vital for both clean water and sanitation for the villagers and to mix cement for the library construction project. It will serve two very important development initiatives. In 2008, an estimated 1.7 million people returned to their homes in Southern Sudan, according to a UN report, with numbers since rising to an estimated 2 million. Putting more strain on already strained resources, the people lack access to water and sanitation facilities. The floor plans for the Library Education Center include several bathroom facilities for future development. Research shows that clean water and soap reduces common disease by 80% and overall deaths by 40%. *We will use a drilling company from Kampala, Uganda and/or Nairobi, Kenya. Documentation on building/developmental details will be provided to all donors during the drilling process and once complete. For more information:

On July 28, 2010 UN Resolution 64/292 declared clean water and sanitation a human right and acknowledged that "clean drinking water and sanitation are essential to the realization of all human rights. The Resolution calls upon States and international organizations to provide financial resources, help capacity-building and technology transfer to help countries, in particular developing countries, to provide safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all.

During the long Second Sudanese Civil War, 2.5 million lives were lost, schools and villages were burnt down and destroyed. Now that South Sudan is the new and free Republic of South Sudan, July 9, 2011, it is a time to unite with our brothers and sisters and bring HOPE through education and development.
ABOUT THE PROJECT: Ajuong Library Edcuation Center will serve all 5 Primary Schools in the Ajoung Community, Twic East County, Jonglei State. As a full functioning two-story Library for both school children and adults, the building will also serve as an Educational Center equipped with a computer room, educational DVD's, a wall projector, an arts and crafts room, and school supply resource center. Currently, their are no school supplies in the schools and the teachers use only a blackboard and chalk. The Library Education Center will serve the needs of the 5 primary schools.

$900.00needed to keep the 3 boys in school for the next 3 month semester: September 1, 2012 - November 31, 2012. Please help us keep the boys out of the refugee camp and in school. As we work to keep the boys in school at St. Gabriel's in Kenya, we have begun a process to bring them to the U.S. in hopes of educating them at O'Gorman H.S. They have spent most of their lives in the refugee camp since small children due to civil war in South Sudan and persecution of their faith.

If we are all able to just give $5 or $10 we can get this done and provide HOPE for a better future through education to the boys!

Our goal is to start an immigration process for the boys to the U.S. while keeping their education process moving forward in Africa.

SPONSOR AN EDUCATION IN 2014 !!!

We have just days left to raise $900.00 for the upcoming semester: September - November 30, 2014.

Dear Friends,

Peace and greetings! We hope and pray you all had a blessed summer vacation with family and friends! It is hard to believe a new school year has begun!

Thank you to all of our friends and sponsors whose prayers and generosity have brought these boys HOPE over the last 3 years: http://marysproject.com/component/content/article/256.html

It is time once again for our Sponsor An Education program for our three boys; Atem (18), Mayen (17) and Yol (14). It has been 3 yrs. that we have been sponsoring the boys and they are doing very well! They are "A" students and have a chance for a brighter future and life out of the refugee camp!

We are excited that Atem and Mayen are now seniors in high school! They were only in the 8th grade when we started sponsoring them, with little or no chance to go any further in their education. It is our hope to bring them to the U.S after their high school graduation to attend a U.S. college! Please continue help us make this dream true. The two boys have only one more year to go...3 semesters left!

We have just days to raise $900.00 for the upcoming semester: September - November 30, 2014.
