Faces of Water


19 years old • Ndatani Secondary School, Kenya


Mirriam loves math, reading storybooks, and dreams of being an accountant.

Before her community gained a new Well Aware water well in 2012, Mirriam faced many water scarcity challenges. She was tasked with collecting water for her family, walking 7 kilometers to a river, which sometimes dried up and provided no water at all. Now, 10 years after their well was built, Mirriam says the water has “improved standards of living.”

Thank you for helping so many like Mirriam gain access to lasting clean water.
