Well Aware identifies, plans, prepares, implements, and follows up with our water projects. Well Aware’s responsibility to the communities in which we work goes far beyond raising funds or the drilling a hole.
Every community in which we are privileged to work has submitted a proposal to Well Aware, and we approve those which meet our strict sustainability criteria. While we are unable to partner with every community who applies, we also work with communities to improve and/or build on their proposals for our approval.
On average, Well Aware can provide lasting clean water to one person for $10.00. Since its founding, Well Aware has funded over 27 water projects and provided clean water to more than 100,000 people.
Well Aware was founded in 2006 by Sarah Evans. Sarah was asked by a friend to help raise funds for livestock for a village in Kenya where the animals were dying from lack of clean water. Sarah insisted that the real solution was a plentiful source of water, and she set out to learn how to drill a well. After years of perseverance, networking, failures and research, Well Aware installed its first well in Kenya in January 2010.
Sustainable means long lasting; meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainability as it applies to water means that societies pass on to future generations all the elements required to provide healthy water on a regular basis: healthy and diverse water systems; pumping and extracting fixtures; and the values, creativity, knowledge, skills, and local institutions that enable societies to adapt effectively to environmental and social changes.
