Have you heard? Well Aware continues to maintain a 100% success rate – meaning ALL of our 80+ water projects in East Africa since 2010 are still functioning and providing clean, drinkable water to our partner communities 💧

In an industry where 60% of water projects fail, this success is not easy to come by. It requires innovation, expertise, adaptability, conscientiousness, and a commitment to the long-term success of our partner communities.

We believe in building collaborative, long-lasting relationships with each of our partner communities that go well beyond the drilling of a well. 🤝

We equip local leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain their water project long after implementation.💦

Even though most of our communities are self-sustaining, we regularly check in to measure impact and our local team is reachable for problems that arise.

By 2025, it is estimated that 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world’s population could be living under water stressed conditions. (UN)

🌍 This is just one reason why our fight for lasting clean water solutions is so important.

Together, we can continue to innovate and provide more communities with sustainable water sources. 💧

Meet Mwangi!👋

He works at Mirera Primary School, where we installed a rainwater catchment system in early 2021. 🌧️ Now, Mwangi and the school’s 3,000+ students have access to plentiful clean water.

“We used to walk far to search for water. Now, we have clean water for drinking. [The project] has enhanced cleanliness in our school and hygiene has improved.”

Thank you so much for supporting people like Mwangi and schools like Mirera! 💙

At Well Aware, our goal is to empower communities and drive development.

We don’t just focus on the impact today – but the Ripple Effect of impact that will occur across decades and generations once a lasting source of clean water becomes available. 🌍

Clean water positively affects individuals' lives in so many ways -- especially women. 🌍

In water-scarce areas, women and girls spend an estimated 200 million hours hauling water every day. (UNICEF)

But, with a nearby clean water source, women are given the opportunity to spend that time on the things that matter most; including education, jobs, caring for their families, starting businesses, and so much more! 💙

Say hi to Mirriam, 19 years old at Ndatani Secondary School! 👋

She loves math, reading storybooks, and dreams of being an accountant.📚 Before her community gained a new Well Aware water well in 2012, Mirriam faced many water scarcity challenges. She was tasked with collecting water for her family, walking 7 kilometers to a river, which sometimes dried up and provided no water at all. Now, 10 years after their well was built, Mirriam says the water has “improved standards of living.” 💧

Thank you for helping so many like Mirriam gain access to lasting clean water.🙏
