History of Us

Already in our first 13 years of operation in Ethiopia, TWA has won 11 awards from local and state authorities for its pioneering work in rural and community development. This reflects our successful partnership with the local communities and truly making a difference in the lives of people we serve.
The primary focus for TWA is the provision of safe drinking and production wells using underground water reserves. We are engaged agriculture/agribusiness: crop irrigation, vegetable and fruit production. TWA’s installs manual wells and the communities benefited a lot from these wells. Several hectares of lad are utilized for production and many young people and women have secured jobs in this way. 

 

Our Works

Water and Sanitation

The Well in action is bringing clean drinking-water to remote communities in Ethiopia by installing wells and modern hand-pumps. Each of our wells supports the daily needs of 50-150 of households.

Agricultural Production

We teach men and women farmers improved techniques of crop production; soil and pest management using organic methods; and animal breeding and husbandry using our model farmers.

Fish Farming

We are planning to launch a fish-farm at Mydimu Lake, 15km from Shire. The lake covers more than six hectares and has been stocked with edible fish. We are organizing farming cooperative to manage the resource.

One of the public sanitation facilities going to be installed by The Well In Action (TWA)

As with the drinking-water wells, the communities take ownership of the new sanitation facilities. Our local qualified staff instruct on good hygiene practice and maintenance. But it is communities who ultimately oversee the running of utilities.
