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.

Showering, for me, is meditative. In those ten minutes, I love the feeling of sensing my skin go from greasy to silky smooth. As I let the water hit my face, washing off my exfoliating soap, I feel as though I could stay there forever.
