The Prem Rawat Foundation Awards Grant to WFSS

WFSS is pleased to announce that The Prem Rawat Foundation has awarded a grant of $10,000 to WFSS to drill fresh water wells in South Sudan. These funds will be used during the 2012-13 drilling season, set to begin in December.

The Prem Rawat Foundation addresses the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace so that people can live with dignity, peace and prosperity. Inspired by Prem Rawat’s vision that peace is a fundamental need for all people, The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) helps to make his message of peace available to people throughout the world and to support efforts to provide nutritious food, clean water, and eye care to people in need.

 

“Water for South Sudan is pleased to be partnering with The Prem Rawat Foundation once again,” said Board Chair Christopher Moore. “Through their generous efforts, thousands of people in South Sudan will have access to fresh, clean water.”

David Weinberg, a volunteer grant reviewer for The Prem Rawat Foundation, said that the foundation was drawn to Water for South Sudan because the wells it builds are sustainable.

"The great thing about Water for South Sudan is they build these wells, they train people to maintain the wells, and they retain their own equipment," said Weinberg.  "It's a great return on your investment from a humanitarian standpoint."
