🚰Maji, biyo, mmiri, omi…

No matter what the word is for water where you’re from, water is a universal necessity for life. Every person deserves to have access to clean, drinkable water -- yet nearly 1 billion do not.

Together, though, we DO have the power to create a world where clean water can be accessible for all. 🌍

Meet Ibrahim 👋 a student at Njoguini Primary School who loves biology and dreams of being a soccer player! ⚽️

In 2019, Well Aware rehabilitated a well at Ibrahim’s school. Now, the 300 students and surrounding community have a steady supply of clean water whenever they need it.🚰
.
Ibrahim feels that reliable access to clean water enables him to go to school everyday, and has significantly raised the hygienic standards of the school and the entire community. “Water is life!”💧🙌

Thank you for supporting so many students like Ibrahim!

At Well Aware, we believe our responsibility to our partner communities goes far beyond the drilling of a hole.

We maintain partnerships & support ongoing water system needs to ensure the longevity of all of our water projects. 💦 While most of our partner communities are self-sustaining, we regularly check in on our water systems to measure impact and our local team is reachable for any maintenance needs that arise. 👊

Putting the ownership of each system into the hands of its community and empowering local leaders to maintain it is one of the most powerful aspects to ensure the long-term success of that project. ✨Learn more about our mission at wellawareworld.org/about (link in bio)

Access to clean water not only increases education for all, but also has a significant impact on gender equality -- with education rates improving 58% for girls, specifically. 👏

In many cases, young girls are responsible for traveling to fetch water. But, with a nearby clean water source, girls can spend more time in the classroom. 📚With more education, their future earning potential improves, they gain a better voice in their communities, and they are empowered to build better futures for themselves and their families. 💫
