Well Aware has become a phenomenal organization doing beautiful work through the support of a large, compassionate community of remarkable people. What began as a small group of young women with a kookie idea has grown into an industry leader in the clean water space. We are humbled by Well Aware’s impressive expansion, and, most importantly, we are deeply grateful for your efforts to support our increasing reach and impact.
In 2018, Well Aware implemented more water projects than any year past. We are also the very first nonprofit to use a new, ground-breaking technology for water system diagnostics and maintenance, and we are now among only 4% of nonprofits on GuideStar earning a Platinum Seal of Transparency.
Our team has had a truly inspiring year in the field observing the transformation that results from our “ripple effect,” all catalyzed by the generosity of Well Aware supporters.
In Salaita, Kenya, where we drilled a new well in November, we witnessed the power of clean water’s effect on a community that, before now, relied on rains that are diminishing each year. The community is planning for crops and will no longer fear not having enough water for their families and livelihood.In Miumbuni, Kenya, we got to see the pure joy and relief that flowed from the village there when we drilled another new borehole. The children were overwhelmed with hope for the future, and many of them repeated to us, “no more pond water!”
