Bio
Judith is commited to identifying her community’s most pressing issues and committing herself to create unique and efficient solutions to such problems. Judith is always in search of cost-effective ways of ensuring lasting solutions to challenges such as health care problems and peace advocacy problems in her country and Africa at large. This passion is shown in Judiths projects which have reached thousands of South Sudanese in very effective ways. These projects include raising awareness on vaccine-preventable diseases and the delivery of the vaccine to communities in Jubek state, projects that support girl-child education and the eradication of early marriage and teenage pregnancy, peer counseling, and mentorship programs. Currently, Judith's project is geared towards eradicating waterborne diseases in South Sudan through raising awareness and the production of earthenware water filters that can trap debris and bacteria as well as kill viruses.
