Reviews for Well Aware

Rating: 5 stars  

I've started as an advisor in the non-profit. I've found them to be very ethical and focused on making the largest difference as possible to bring clean water to people who currently have no access.

Well Aware has really impressed me in 3 key ares: Value for money in the projects with every dollar being used in the best possible way, project follow up to ensure sustainability and the level of commitment from the volunteers. An excellent job in bringing water to the rural community in Kenya. Keep it up!

WellAware is a great organization doing the type of work that offers the greatest return on every dollar donated. Every dollar goes to giving life to communities in need. There are very few charities that can come close to this type of purpose driven return on the investment.

I have volunteered with Well Aware on several occasions and each time has been a memorable and lasting experience. This is an organization who prides themselves in providing great volunteer experience. They are doing great work in East Africa that is backed with a sustainable model. I look forward to volunteering with them again and again!

Well Aware, it's donors and their projects are saving lives, empowering people and 100% of their wells are functional. They are a dedicated team of professionals that put the needs of others first, a non-profit to be trusted and supported.

This is a great nonprofit organization, worthy of your support! It's easy (and wonderful) to have the desire to help others in need- it's a lot more challenging to maintain a nonprofit organization that consistently chooses and manages successful projects in another country. Well Aware has done an incredible job of bringing water and hope to people who desperately need it in Kenya. They have a dedicated staff and are handling their donations and projects in an honest and dependable way. They have good intentions and put them into action with joy and purpose. This is a great organization to support.

Well Aware not only has wonderful intentions of bringing clean water access to rural parts of Kenya they make sure to do it with long-term, self-sustaining strategies for the communities they serve. If all non-profits were run this way the world would be a much better place.

Well Aware engages donors with their life saving work in Kenya. I see my donations saving lives. The small staff is compassionate and incredibly hard working.
