I was lucky enough to accompany Well Aware to Kenya in June 2016. Getting to see first-hand how Well Aware implements their projects and impacts the lives of others was an experience that can never fully put into words. Without clean water, there is no health, little education, and community development is stunted. Well Aware changes all of that for the people of the communities they work with. We were able to visit a community that has now had clean water for 4 years because of Well Aware. There are now multiple school buildings, a clinic, health has dramatically improved, and all the children are getting an education. Well Aware does the most with every donor dollar to have the greatest impact on their partner communities and I was able to see first hand the massive difference they are making in the lives of so many. This nonprofit exceeds all expectations with their truly life-changing work.

The dedication to sustainability of their projects is what makes them stand apart. They don't just dig a well, they engage with the community, they teach them new clean-water skills, they help with managing the change that their impact will make down the road, they visit and re-visit their communities. This is how all non-profit, mission oriented organizations should be run.

Few NPO's have a perfect track record in achieving their mission objectives. Every well they've dug in Africa is still operational - and other water-based NPO's are starting to consult with WA for best practices in the chosen field.

My experience as a donor and Village Member with Well Aware has been very positive - I attribute this to the excellent leadership provided by Sarah Evans. Sarah has assembled an excellent group of mentors to assist her in guiding Well Aware from donations collected in the US to actual digging of wells in Africa.

There are few times a donor can actually observe a dollar donated translate into a very tangible item (in this case a water well in Africa) - all done with exceptional fiscal oversight.

I was introduced to Well Aware over a year ago. In that time I have learned not only the high efficiency and effectiveness in which this nonprofit works, but the success of Well Aware is nothing short of incredible. There are numerous clean water projects attempted in Africa. It's important to recognize that 60% of the wells in Africa do not work in . 100% of Well Aware's projects are successful. They have positively impacted over 100,000 people in numerous rural communities in Kenya by providing clean water for life. Well Aware improves and sustains health, education, and economic growth. I have seen first hand the transformation these communities experience. I am so proud to be associated with such a high impact non profit!

I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to work with Well Aware in Kenya this year, and words can't describe the life changing work their doing here. Well Aware provides clean water through installation of sustainable water wells in rural Kenya and facilitating education. This organization has touched my soul in such a way that I'll never be the same. So much love for the team that provides this powerful life source to those who need it most. Please help support this cause by giving generously.

I was fortunate to be on the last WellAware trip to Kenya to get a first hand experience of the beautiful work they're doing there and the thousands of lives they're changing. This Austin based nonprofit is run by a passionate team, and is really an amazing project to get behind.
It was incredible to see how something as simple as water, a source I've taken for granted my entire life be a matter of life and death to thousands of people, and to see WellAware come in and change that and provide hope was truly inspiring. They come highly recommended!

Well aware is changing people's lives by providing clean water to communities in Africa. Kids can now attend school and mother have time for other economical work other than spend all day walking long distance looking for water that is not even clean for the family. schools are coming up around the places Well aware have build water systems since the communities who used to be mobile looking for water have now build permanent settlements.
