Water contributes to every aspect of a child’s education. When a child spends their days fulfilling the need for water, it’s time they can’t spend learning, or playing with their friends. Kids need close and safe access to water in order to get back into the classroom and bring their ideas and dreams to life. 📷: Karen Kavete

Cheers from Kaiseyie ✨💧 Today, our team visited the community of Salaita, Kenya - where we drilled a new well one year ago. The transformation since has been incredible. 👏🏾 Everyone is happy & healthy. They have plans for a new garden and have started building a fence for it from the income they are generating from the well. Water ➡️ reinvestment ➡️ growth We can’t wait to see what else this community will accomplish with this reliable clean water source! 📷: Kristi Shaw #cheers #waterislife

“I love my community--they support my education.” Meet Ibrahim, a 13-year-old student at Njoguini Primary School. His favorite subject in school is biology because “it teaches us about our bodies.” In addition to studying, he loves playing soccer and dreams of becoming a pro soccer player when he grows up. ⚽️ Before Well Aware partnered with Ibrahim’s community, he and his two sisters bore the responsibility of fetching water from the nearest borehole twice a week, often missing school to do so. Now, with a bountiful clean water system right next to his school, Ibrahim can focus on his studies and his dreams of being a soccer player. “Water is life.” 📷: Karen Kavete

MAJI 💧💙😆 This weekend, our team checked on several completed projects in Nakuru County, Kenya. In New Canaan, where we completed a clean water system this spring, everyone was bubbly, happy, giggling —> joyful for the reliable water that’s keeping them clean & healthy. It’s amazing to see the difference that has occurred here in just half a year! Disease is down ⬇️. Education is ⬆️. And everyone is hopeful for their changed futures. 📷: Kristi Shaw

Clean water access at Kiliku Primary School! This is what your gifts enable. 🎉 When kids have clean water at school, they can wash their hands, drink without worry of sickness, and focus on the things that matter the most - like studying or playing with their friends. Thank you for empowering kids like these! 🙏

Agriculture is a water-intensive endeavor. 💧🌾 But having water is not enough to guarantee crop wellness -- only clean water can do that. Poor water quality can affect the integrity of crops and lead to contamination of food, posing a big health risk for those who consume the food. From planting the seed to harvesting the food crop, clean water is needed every step of the way. 🌱 📷: John Langford

Jambo from Kenya! 👋 Our Austin-based team is in the field with our East Africa team for the next two weeks to check on past projects, conduct impact measurement, and drill our first-ever well in Tanzania at the New Hope School outside of Arusha. 🎬Stay tuned for behind-the-scenes work and inspiring stories that YOU have enabled through your support. 💧🎉 📷: Amanda Cernovich

“Water makes things happen.” 💧 Meet Duncan, 16-year-old student at Tigithi Secondary School near @olpejeta. He loves playing, studying and running. Math is Duncan’s favorite subject in school -- he says it gives him leeway to solve equations and that “life is a big equation in itself.” 🔢🤔 Duncan fetches water from a nearby well, two or three times a week depending on the usage at home. The water that he gets from the well is not clean. Duncan says water is a basic part of everyday life. We agree. 👉 Help Duncan and other students at Tigithi Secondary School gain lasting clean water by donating today at wellawareworld.org/donate. 📷: Karen Kavete

Clean water is health, education, gender equality, and economic opportunity. It can be the difference between a mother starting her own business, or a father walking for hours to collect water. Sometimes, it's the biggest roadblock standing between a child and high school graduation. When you give clean water, you give so much more. 📷: Karen Kavete

Getting access to clean drinking water shouldn’t be difficult. No one should have to wonder if the water they’re drinking is safe or not. Clean water is a human right. When we recognize its importance and invest in making it accessible to all, we build the stepping stones for lasting change. 📷: Brett Buchanan

“I want to help women bring life into this world.” 💕 By giving clean water, you empower young women like Hilda to become leaders & improve the world around them. For Hilda, that means becoming a midwife. ✨ Thank you for sparking a wave of impact. 📷: Erinn Wright

We want to take a moment to give thanks to all of the amazing teachers across the globe who inspire, guide, and teach us what it means to change lives for the better. We meet many incredible, devoted educators throughout our work in East Africa, and we are constantly amazed by the difference they are making in their communities and schools. So, here’s to you, teachers! 📷: Lindsey Reed

Regular project maintenance & upkeep is paramount for sustainability. 💧 We implemented this clean water system in 2017 for 2,400 people in Ndovoini, Kenya. Recently, the groundwater changed, so the original pump was having trouble keeping up. This month, our team went back to replace the pump with one that is designed to accommodate these changes & ensure the longevity of the system. This is what true sustainability means to us: upholding the integrity of all of our projects to ensure lasting impact for each community. 📽️: Mike Mutuku

Your impact is powerful and far-reaching. Providing clean water for life is no easy task, but it’s critical for empowering the health and goals of those without access to it. When you support clean water, you change the trajectories of generations. That’s certainly something to smile about this weekend. 📷: Greg Davis

Globally, 4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation facilities, such as adequate hand-washing stations and toilets. Without these facilities and the clean water needed to power them, children and adults are put at a higher risk for diseases, directly impacting educational outcomes and economic opportunities. Clean water is a critical component of sanitation, health, and growth. 📷: Brett Buchanan

Each of us has the unique ability to uplift a child by providing clean and safe drinking water. With $10, you can give clean water for LIFE. 💧🎉We’re all in this together. wellawareworld.org/donate 📷: Lindsey Reed

“My favorite subject is biology, because it goes hand-in-hand with my dream career.” 🔬 Catherine is a 17-year-old student who dreams of attending university to become a nurse. Previously, the well in Catherine’s community was vulnerable to breakages, which meant that her family had to ration water. Health and education were a challenge without sufficient water for hydration and sanitation. Catherine’s dreams and hopes are unique. Her story, however, is not.💧Water is an essential part of everyday life. Improved, reliable access to clean water, without worry of system breakage, means that Catherine’s dreams of becoming a nurse are more possible. 🙌 Thank you for empowering kids like Catherine every day through lasting clean water. 📷: Karen Kavete
