About Well Aware

We are deeply committed to building reliable, long-lasting water sources that will not fail, and will continue to provide Clean Water for Life – enabling entire communities and future generations to thrive, grow, and develop.

The Water Crisis

Nearly 1 billion people lack access to clean water.

This inhibits individuals, families, and entire communities from leading healthy lives. Without clean water, education cannot thrive, gender inequality grows, economic activity becomes stagnant, and development is stifled.

The Water Crisis

Too many water aid projects fail to provide sustainable solutions.

That’s where we come in. Well Aware is committed to maintaining a 100% success rate across all of our projects, ensuring each water system is functioning and providing lasting clean water to its respective community.
