About Well Aware
We build 100% successful clean water systems in East Africa. Our water systems lower disease rates, improve classroom attendance, and provide water supply for distribution and agriculture.
At Well Aware, we believe our responsibility to our partner communities goes far beyond the drilling of a hole. More than 60% of existing water wells in Africa fail within the first year of implementation.
Our water systems work and they last because of realistic, responsible planning and collaboration. Our partner communities are motivated, organized, and prepared communities who need only sustainable clean water to kick-start their success. We adapt each project according to each community’s specific needs. And, our partner communities are thriving as a result.

Additional Internship & COVID-19 Information

At this time, our team, including interns, are working remotely. If we transition to in-person, the work will take place at our S. Congress Ave. office location (8201 S. Congress Ave. Austin, TX 78745).
