Dear Friends and Family,
Well Aware stands firmly against inequities that divide us as a country and a world. The founding of this organization was inspired by the need for social justice and equity, and we aspire to ensure that these tenets run deeply through and guide our actions and mission each and every day.
The Well Aware model for community-led programming in East Africa has been very successful. From the beginning, we have known that our role is to listen to and be guided by our partner communities to provide only what is lacking toward their success.
We want this community-driven model to be more embodied in our work here in the U.S. We want the Black community to be a larger part of our state-side operations and leadership. As we grow, we commit to continue improving to meet the goals outlined below.
We recognize we have work to do, and we commit ourselves to action.
As an organization, we exist in both the U.S. and East Africa. We are still small, but we are mighty, and we feel we can play a role in bringing cultures, beliefs, and hearts together.
The work we do - the work you fund and support - is a collection of efforts to foster and promote equal opportunity. Thank you for elevating the values of our work with us within every community. And, thank you to our friends and colleagues in the Black community who have educated and guided us along the way.
Black Lives Matter.
