Living Water Community Transformation, Inc. (LWCT) is a United States IRS 501(c)(3) organization formed with the purpose of socially and spiritually enriching the community of Akot, South Sudan. Akot is a rural community with a total population of approximately 12,000 people scattered over a large geographic area. LWCT was founded by Ann Rao of Tampa, Florida who was led by God to minister to the needs of the Dinka people living in the Akot area. As President of LWCT, Ann is joined by a Board of Directors, all of whom have served in Akot, each called by the Lord to this ministry.
Our goal is to be selfless in our mission, devoted to the cause we have been assigned, and continuously listening for God’s direction. All serve as volunteers with no compensation for time or travel. LWCT’s leadership team in Akot consists entirely of local Christian nationals dedicated to leading others to Christ. The organization is registered as Akot Christian Ministries in South Sudan. Simply sustaining life in Akot is very difficult but we hope to impact the people of Akot in a holistic way that will improve their day-to-day existence. The LWCT Board of Directors and ACM Leadership Team work together as witnesses to the love of Jesus Christ in the community of Akot, South Sudan.
