Living Water Community Transformation (LWCT) is a faith-based community development organization. We exist to help communities become spiritually grounded in Christ, physically healthy, and economically self-sustaining. LWCT was officially recognized as a 501(C)(3) in 2010. The mission, however, actually began in 2003 with volunteer medical teams from the United States serving in South Sudan. We organized under the name, Living Water Community Transformation, Inc.
In spite of many years of civil war, a failed economy, severe food shortage and millions of displaced people, LWCT was able to thrive in Lakes State, South Sudan. We focused on Pastor and Church Development, Women’s Ministry, Primary Education and Agribusiness.
After 16 years of ministry in Lakes State, we felt that LWCT had accomplished what God had called us to do there. Our successes included: two primary schools, with 900 pupils; 20 new churches; a vibrant women’s ministry with 800 weekly attendees, meeting in several villages; a sewing school on two campuses; and a demonstration farm. Literacy classes for women, discipleship groups for men, Bible clubs for children and pastor training groups were also implemented. Several scholarships were provided for university and secondary school. Benevolent ministries such as installing community water wells, food distributions, and orphan and widow support were provided over the time LWCT served there. We continue to support widows and orphans in Lakes State, South Sudan.
