Since our first project was implemented in 2010, we have increased our project capacity every year, and we have growing teams of experts who ensure our projects are completed on time, with integrity, and with the most cost-effective use of donor dollars. Our project planning and execution includes our own thorough technical evaluation and oversight, strategic nonprofit partnerships to further community success, hygiene and sanitation training, and community empowerment and support. Well Aware conducts regular evaluations of all completed projects, but most of our partner communities no longer need us.

The 2019 Shower Shrike is just wrapping up. Every April, through just one powerful fundraising week, we are able to empower many more lives and make a great change in the world.

This year, we are transforming thousands of lives by implementing a life-saving water system for the Mirera Primary School, one of the most populous schools in Kenya. Mirera is one of the communities featured in this year’s Shower Shrike. This means that funds raised will go towards providing clean water to the students at the school.
