Association for Water Applied Education & Renewable Energy (AWARE) was formed in spring 2003 and registered under Societies Act 1860 # 4142 on February 12, 2005.

The focus of the Organization is arid and semi-arid areas of District Tharparkar, Umerkot, Badin, Tando Mohd Khan and Sanghar. AWARE is ever cautious and keeps a hawkish eye over the all emerging issues, concerns, problems and difficulties. AWARE has vast idea to ease opportunities and find out the ways and means to develop the target area.

Renewable Energy and Applied Education are focused for poverty reduction, as we believe in the development through local resources. For Thar Desert we have initiated pilot projects. In command area due to water shortage and degradation of land and increasing desertification are main driving forces to redevelop the concepts and practical approaches.

An intensive study of underground water quality in Thar is conducted with support of Pakistan Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (PCSIR) Laboratories Complex Karachi, Neuron Medicine Department of Dow Medical University Karachi, Geology Department of Karachi University & Center of Excellence in Analytical Chemistry Jamshoro, an intensive study of water quality in Thar was conducted and this took more than 05 years in completion.

Holistic approach is on preference. AWARE focuses three main components as clear by name but relates all aspects. In isolation we can’t develop anything, this is our strategy to take an entry point and then expand with integrated approaches.

All the issues and problems of society are in focus and preferences are given with nature, intensity and importance. This will result far lucrative to deprived and marginalized segments of society.
