Innovation is a core value at Well Aware, and has allowed us to create and maintain our 100% success model. 💧

Through the development and implementation of our @WellBeyondWater app, partner community members are now able to maintain and diagnose water systems, allowing them to prevent and solve issues on their own. This means that projects are kept up and running, and partners get to experience community-led success! 💙

Meet Joseph! 👋

Joseph has lived in Atot his whole life and works loading and unloading trucks. He loves his community and that he & his neighbors live together in harmony. According to Joseph, the two biggest threats in Atot used to be drought and hunger. Because there is no sewage system, human waste flows into the same river they used to drink from. They used ash as filtration for the water, however, community members still got sick often.

With the new clean water system we implemented in September 2022, there is now enough for drinking and handwashing so that diseases are eliminated and community members are healthy! 💙🚰

#DYK with clean water, diseases plummet an average of 64%? 💧

Reliable access to clean water, along with better sanitation and hygiene practices, causes rates for waterborne illnesses, like cholera, to plummet and drastically improves the health of communities.

Communities are healthier and individuals can restfully know that they won’t get sick from drinking their new water supply! That’s something to smile about this Monday! 💙😊

Women and girls are responsible for water collection in 8 out of 10 households where water is not accessible in homes. In water scarce areas, this means walking an average of 3.5 miles daily to bring back water for the family that may or may not be safe to drink.

That’s why when a partner community gains access to clean water, education rates for girls rise by 58% on average, gender equality improves, and women are able to focus on their goals and their futures! 😊👏

Water scarcity is a global issue faced by millions each year. Without reliable access to clean water, communities suffer, education cannot thrive, gender inequality becomes the norm, economic activity stalls, and development is stifled.

That’s where Well Aware comes in. 🌍

In an industry where 60% of water projects fail on average, we continue to maintain a 100% success rate across all 114+ water projects we have implemented to date. We haven’t accomplished this by avoiding the challenges that come with working in the water aid sector, but rather by using them to grow and develop our strengths.

Common challenges we face are:
💧 Technical & Local Expertise
💧 Community Involvement & Proper Training
💧 Measurement, Monitoring, & Evaluation

All of which we combat through our commitment to partnership, efficiency, innovation, and sustainability 💧

To ensure every project fits the needs of our partner communities, our team of engineers and hydrogeologists design each water system to address the unique water challenges of every community. Project sites are extensively researched and surveyed prior to the design process, and our partner communities work with us every step of the way to come up with innovative solutions! 🤝

Once a custom water system is implemented, the @WellBeyondWater App by Well Aware offers maintenance and repair resources to ensure these projects provide reliable water to communities for generations. ✨🚰
