Ambassador of the Year

 

Also recognized annually at our Winter Waterland Gala, this award commends an exceptional supporter who goes above and beyond to represent and advocate for Well Aware in both their local community and the global community.

 

Nav Sooch is a co-founder of Silicon Labs, a tech entrepreneur, and a global philanthropist who has supported Well Aware’s work since the very beginning. He demonstrates an inspiring dedication to removing barriers for the most vulnerable populations and has contributed greatly to reducing the suffering from water scarcity in last-mile communities. Nav also believes that access to education can be the single biggest factor in an individual reaching a level of full self-sufficiency, and he is committed to empowering others by opening doors to better educational and economic opportunities both here at home and across the globe. Nav has amplified Well Aware’s mission in many ways over the years, and we are honored to celebrate his incredible commitment to the cause.

 

Tune in on December 3rd for your chance to catch Amy Poehler, Meredith Walker, and Nav Sooch.

 

 

 

Our friends at Ol Pejeta Conservancy will lead you through a one-of-a-kind VIRTUAL safari experience, right from your sofa! You’ll have the chance to see fantastic African wildlife (think: rhinos, zebras, and lions, oh my!) that live within the 90,000-acre conservancy in Kenya.

 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience the magic of East Africa from your home! Virtual Safari Pre-Party begins at 6:45 pm CST and the program begins at 7 pm CST.

 

Jon’s music carries listeners on an artful journey through his remarkable life, which began in a small suburban slum in Kampala, Uganda, where he experienced first-hand the challenges of water scarcity. As a vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Jon Muq makes soul-filled pop music that celebrates the magic of human connection, love, and the world’s many wonders. 


Join us from your home on December 3rd for a special musical performance by Jon Muq as we celebrate 11 years of clean water impact.

This year has been one of many changes, for all of us. But our partner communities in East Africa and those still awaiting clean water have been hit the hardest. 


Can you imagine not having clean water to drink or wash your hands to fight off illness?


With your help, we will raise $160,000 through the virtual gala -- enough to scale our water projects in 2021 and provide more than 10,000 people with lasting clean water.

 

Together, we can ensure our partner communities in East Africa can not only survive, but THRIVE!
