We all see the world differently, but we have the following 3 things in common: it’s our home, our future, and our responsibility. 📷Greg Davis - National Geographic Image Collection Photographerer

This holiday season, give the gift of clean water for life. The New Hope School in Arusha, Kenya needs your support. With 131 students, 12 teachers, and 2 staff members, the school depends on a nearby river for contaminated water which is also used by animals and livestock. Any amount you give will help us build a new, sustainable water well for these kids and the surrounding community. Donate at http://bit.ly/cleanwatergift. 📷: Anne Cromwell | #CleanWaterForLife

“Water is life. Most of the continent, most of our planet is water and many of us take it for granted: that it’s there and we're going to always have it and we’re always going to be able to use it. We're less sensitive about it because we think 'oh, the people come first and then the water.' And actually, our planet comes first, then us.” - Dr. Auma Obama accepting our 2018 Global impact Award on December 1st at Rockin' in a Winter Waterland. We are still reeling from all of the inspiration and truth she shared with us. Thank you, Dr. Obama. 👏 😍

A lot of hard work and focus goes into maintaining our 100% success rate. In Africa, 60% of water systems fail on average. The reason we are able to ensure the long-term viability of our water systems is the talent, intellect, and dedication of the many incredible people who make up our tech team.

The Patt Christopher Project (TPCP) has raised more for clean water than any other group in Well Aware history. Brother and sister, Newton Hopkins and Caitlin Bonner, teamed up with their spouses Blake Bonner and Monica Hopkins, to honor the life of their mother, Patt Christopher. Patt made a huge impact on the lives of others in her 48 years. Through TPCP, her legacy lives on. 🎥: Hearty Films

We’ve made a lot of progress in the world in the way of human rights. But, we still have a ways to go. The human right to clean water entitles everyone to have access to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use. Globally, 844 million people lack even a basic drinking-water service. Stand with us today, on Human Rights Day, and everyday, as we work to provide this basic human right. Visit our website to see how you can get involved today. Photo: Greg Davis

We are so inspired by Dr. Auma Obama, our 2018 Global Impact Award recipient, and full of gratitude that we have the honor of partnering with her in Sauti Kuu, Kenya. Watch this moving video by Hearty Films to see how she has built a legacy around the world and reminds us all how important it is to empower others.

"The diverse and dynamic role of volunteerism in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals merits strong support from governments and other stakeholders. On this International Day, I thank volunteers for their efforts to leave no one behind." - António Guterres On International #Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development, we want to take some time to recognize and thank all of the volunteers who have helped us provide clean water to communities in East Africa to help kickstart their own sustainable development. We are grateful to anyone who gives their time, their knowledge and their hearts to this work. Thank you. 📷: Brett Buchanan

Our silent auction was an incredible success- raising enough to transform almost 2,000 lives through clean water. This impact simply wouldn’t be possible without all of our amazing silent auction sponsors, and our generous donors, Alan Blake and Rich Crockett, who matched all donations raised through it! We can’t express how much this means to us; we are so grateful.

For these kids, clean water means not having to skip school to trek for water miles away. This impact starts with the tech team we have here at Well Aware- their dedication and knowledge is what powers us to be able to change lives. We are grateful for their energy and brilliance always.
