· Well Aware is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with headquarters in Austin, Texas.
· Provides innovative and sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination in Africa.
· Funds and implements life-saving water systems to drive economic development and build self-sufficient communities.
· Well Aware’s model and technology have been able to provide clean water for decades at an average cost of just $10 per person. This has caused impacted communities to reduce disease rates by 64%, increase education by 34%, and increase education for girls by 58%.
· The industry standard, including non-profits, for successful, sustainable wells is only 40%. This means many communities develop wells, only to be left dry or unsafe soon after. Well Aware, however, has had a 100% success rate by using the latest innovative and sustainable technologies and by working closely with communities.
