I have followed the success and growth of Well Aware since the first began implementing projects in 2010. I have admired their high standards for ethical fundraising and management, as well as how they have created programs that truly honor and empower the communities where they work. Their project have immediate and lasting impact because of their sustainability model and realistic approach to providing clean water. It is not often that a budding nonprofit develops such a strong and impactful program side before they are very well known.
