Water for Singo
Water for Singo is the story of how Wesley Kosa returned to Singo, South Sudan, and brought a well to his village. Wesley recounts the struggles of building the well and offers insight into his childhood growing up in the central African nation.
With proceeds from the book going to the village of Singo, Water for Singo reminds us to never take things for granted and shows what's possible when you decide to make a difference in the lives of the people you love.
"Brooke Anderson's evocative artwork and Wesley Kosa's compelling storytelling draw us deep into a simpler but more challenging life, then lift us in a wellspring of anticipation as a well is dug in the town of Singo. This is a story of generosity and joy, springing from one culture to another. Share it widely, for it nourishes the imagination as well as the heart."
