The Water for Recovery and Peace Program (WRAPP) began in late 2004, after Pact Sudan received
funding from OFDA for programming in Greater Upper Nile and Greater Bahr el Ghazel Regions. The
WRAPP Equatoria program was proposed to extend the experience, the approach and the high level of
achievements of the original WRAPP program into Eastern and Central Equatoria States, thus expanding
the WRAPP program area to 9 states out of the 10 states in Southern Sudan and three areas. It began in
April 2007 and, after two extensions, ended on June 29, 2009. The WRAPP Equatoria program has been implemented in 7 counties of Eastern Eqatoria and 4 counties of Central Equatoria States. The activities of the WRAPP Equatoria program have been achieved through partnerships with Sudanese NGOs, INGOs and private sector contractors, with a strong focus on enhancing the capacity of local partner organizations. WRAPP Equatoria has accomplished the following major achievements: 92 new boreholes drilled, 70 borehole repaired, 19 springs protected, 22 hafirs expanded, 21 hand dug wells constructed, one eco-san public toilet and one school pit latrine installed, 280 household latrines dug, two rainwater harvesting schemes improved, and 23 different livelihoods improvement activities carried out. A total of more 230 Water and Sanitation Management Committees (WSMCs) have been established and took over the management of the facilities installed or rehabilitated. The program through this OFDA fund is estimated to have benefited over 100,000 people including 30,000 returnees. OFDA’s funding through the WRAPP Equatoria project also allowed Pact to leverage funding from other sources to achieve additional activities in Equatoria Region including: 14 boreholes (plus 5 under another OFDA award), 3 public latrines, 24 borehole rehabilitations and 2 SWDS schemes, estimated to be providing safe potable water and improved sanitation to over 30,000 people.
