Ensure women can stop walking 9 miles to the river for water? Check Check. ✔️ Here’s the finished clean water project that was built in Alemach in 2014 in partnership with @GloFish_! 🤗 Since then, education has improved ⬆️, disease decreased dramatically ⬇️, and women are spending their days planting crops and growing businesses 🌾, instead of walking for water.💧 It’s incredible to see the progress and continued success of communities like Alemach long after the well is drilled! 💙 📷: Lindsey Reed

When you give clean water, you empower them to spend their days on more important things -- like jobs or school. Clean water ➡️better gender equality Will you join us as we forge ahead towards a more equitable world?

To celebrate #WorldWaterDay (Sunday, March 22nd), we’re using the next five days to share facts, impact stories & the value of your clean water support! 💦🎉 Day 1 Fact: Did you know that 1 in 4 primary schools and 1 in 6 secondary schools have no drinking water service? (@unicef). We’re here to change that. 💪 Access to clean water ➡️ a healthier learning environment ➡️ 34% increase in attendance rates! Just take Olmoran, Kenya, for example -- in 2017, we completed a new well for this community (system seen here). Since then, school attendance & graduation rates have drastically improved. 🎓 “At Olmoran High School, students were 400 in 2017, but has since increased to 616…” Check out our story for more details about Olmoran’s success, and follow along as we share more water statistics and stories throughout the week! 📷: 1) Lindsey Reed Ivy 2) Manny Pandya Photography

"We can't back down now in the fight for clean water. And we won't." 💧💪 A message from Well Aware Executive Director, Kareece Sacco, about our response to COVID-19: "The growing coronavirus pandemic provides a great challenge for us as a global society. Thousands of businesses, individuals, nonprofits, and communities are feeling the devastation this virus has caused and are anxious about what’s to come. Here at Well Aware, we are feeling the effects as well. Our biggest fundraising and awareness campaign of the year, Shower Strike, is coming up during a time where personal hygiene and handwashing is of the utmost importance. We will not ask our Shower Strike participants to stop showering. There are many other alternatives to get involved in the campaign and make a difference. But with this recognition of the concern comes further recognition of the challenge we are trying to solve. How lucky are we to have water that we can use to wash our hands? And clean water we can drink to help our bodies fight off illness? Imagine if we didn’t….. Like the thousands of people in our East African partner communities who are waiting for access to what many of us have within a short grasp. Our clean water efforts are more important than ever before. This is our opportunity to further stand together and lift each other up. We can’t back down now in the fight for clean water. And we won’t. We hope you will join us as we press forward and continue to work around the clock to ensure more deserving people gain access to this most vital resource."

Do you believe clean water is a human right? We do, too. 👏 That’s why, in April, we’re going on #ShowerStrike 🚫— skipping showers, raising awareness for global water issues, and fundraising to provide 30,000 more deserving people with lasting clean water. For too many, a clean drink of water is not a guarantee. A shower is often a luxury. It's the least we can do to skip our showers for a week, so that others can survive and thrive. 💧🎉 Join this year's Shower Strike & help create a world where every human has access to the basic right of clean water. 👉Visit wellawareworld.org/shower-strike to learn more. 📣P.S. You CAN participate & STILL shower if you need to! There are many alternatives. All that matters is raising awareness and fundraising to change lives. 📷: Lindsey Reed

Much of the burden of collecting water falls on women - who spend a significant portion of their days fetching it. 💭Imagine what would happen if clean access to water was easy, close & always available.🚰 More women could pursue further education or start a business. 🎓📈 When clean water is accessible, the future is limitless. 💙 📷: Lindsey Reed

Saturday dance party! 🕺 Spending time with community members & kids is one of our favorite things about this work. 💙Community relationships are key!

#DYK that over 443 million days of school are lost due to water-related illness each year? Something needs to change, and it all starts with having clean water and proper sanitation facilities at school. 💧 📷: Lindsey Reed

Where there is water, there is LIFE! 🙌 .
