In July 2022, Well Aware partnered with two of our awardee organizations -- The Nobelity Project and Ol Pejeta Conservancy on a new well drill benefiting Tangi Nyeusi, a small primary school situated within the Ol Pejeta game preserve in Kenya.   When we first visited the community, it was and still is the only school in a radius of 15 miles in its region. Previously, community members have been walking to fetch drinking water from a dam or other contaminated surface water sources.   But now, the community is beginning to THRIVE with clean water. There are already more students, and with the help of the Nobelity Project, an entirely new classroom block has been built, making education more accessible.   So...celebrate clean water access and our fantastic awardees with these items specially curated for you!   Photo print of Tangi Nyeusi women by Turk Pipkin 1st Edition copies of Turk Pipkin's Book (2 qty. of each) The Tao of Willie When Angels Sing A Christmas Song The Moleskin Mystery Safari Travel Kit from Ol Pejeta Conservancy Special edition Modal Cashmere Scarf from Ol Pejeta Conservancy featuring an image of two rhinos, inspired by famous wildlife photographer Ami Vitale
