Question: What do a rock band, a cinematographer, a National Geographic Creative photographer, a former motorcycle PR agent and water wells all have in common?
Answer: They will all be in Kenya with Well Aware next week!
One of the most challenging things about our work is connecting the generous people who contribute with the people whose lives you are forever a part of in Kenya. Photos and stories help to bridge this gap, but there is so much more. We wish we could show you the sounds, the struggle, the joy, and the hard work that the Well Aware team does to be the very best stewards of your donations.
So, we have invited brilliant artists to join us in the field this time to capture the music, the celebrations, the long work nights, the communities' partnerships and the heartbreaks that we see on every trip.
We are so very proud to host the following remarkably talented Well Aware creative ambassadors:
