My name is Dennis Mutaki Mutunga. I am 28 years old and I live in Nairobi-Kenya.

I am also a tech enthusiast and software design expert with a Diploma in Information Technology from the Mt Kenya University, a certification in CAD software’s (AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Civil 3D, Revit).
I started off my Engineering career in the year 2017 after graduating from the University, I worked for several construction companies in Nairobi as a Design and Site Engineer in different type of projects ranging from building structures, water supply projects and also Road’s grading projects. One of my goals in life was giving back to the community and passing on my knowledge to the younger generation, I thus lectured in The Kenya Water Institute in Water Resource Management, CAD software Designs.
It was not until the year 2018 when I met the amazing team from Well Aware (Mike Mutuku and Sarah Evans) who gave me an opportunity to be involved in their projects and my life has never been the same again. I had found a career path that was both satisfying career wise and changes the life’s of people in the grass roots by providing the most valuable resource in life – water. As an Engineer, I am trained to solve problems and so I have been doing by being involved in over 50 Water projects in East Africa and changing the life’s of over 50 communities for the better.
As a Projects Associate in Well Aware, I am tasked with receiving and analyzing project requests from different communities and evaluating their viability, making site visits to verify such information, getting quotations from contractors and supervision of Contractors work to ensure they align with design specifications that we have laid out.
