Since our first project was implemented in 2010, we have doubled 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 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. Read about our teams implementing our work and the partner organizations we have selected to increase our impact.

Celebrating International Women’s day is a tradition that dates back to 1909. The day originates from women fighting for better working conditions in the clothing industry, in return bringing needed attention to the women’s suffrage movement.
