project associate - East Africa
Mesret is a 5th-year student at Egerton University pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Water and Environmental Engineering.
Mesret joined Well Aware as a Project Intern in 2020 and is now working for Well Aware in a full-time capacity as Project Associate. She has proven a vital part of our team. She has helped design our water projects, train partner communities on system maintenance, conduct site visits, and report on project progress and actions needed.
She is from a community called Marsabit, in the Northern part of Kenya, where she has experienced firsthand the challenges that come with scarcity of water and other resources.
“I understand what it means to go without water or walking for miles in search of water and coming back with none. Being a change to these communities is my drive.”
