Sarah Evans is going Well Beyond to lead the way in the worldwide clean-water movement; November 2018
Most of us take for granted the water we drink, bathe in, cook with, spray our plants with…and waste. But what would our world look like if six out of 10 faucets suddenly stopped working? What if women had to spend six hours a day traveling to collect clean water, or if a child died from a waterborne disease every 90 seconds?
These are unthinkable scenarios yet a fact of everyday life in much of the developing world. Millions of families in Africa have no reliable source of clean water—but that’s something Sarah Evans is out to change.
Since founding the nonprofit Well Aware in 2009, Evans, along with her team, has funded and implemented life-saving water systems in 54 communities in East Africa.
