Mesret joined Well Aware as a Project Intern in 2020 and 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.
Mesret is a 5th-year student at Egerton University pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Water and Environmental Engineering. 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.”
Mesret says that working with Well Aware helps her be that change. “I have experienced the joy that Well Aware has given these communities.”
We are excited to now bring her on in a full-time capacity as a Project Associate and we are looking forward to seeing all she will accomplish!
