The Awareness Days are an annual series of community education programs that promote the importance of clean water, sanitation, hygiene, nutrition and specific health conditions or diseases. The program is led by ACF board members in partnership with the local government and association leaders and Montana State University students. The Days are open to the public.

The Days incorporate a variety of activities including: roundtable discussions (community leaders and government officials, elementary school students, female and male heads of households); presentations at the elementary school and tutoring program; community educational workshops, field trips and excursions, and current agricultural methods, tools and techniques.
