Mission

A Spring of Hope is a non-profit organization that provides schools in sub-Saharan Africa with sustainable water sources for drinking, sanitation, irrigation, and food preparation to improve health conditions, combat poverty, promote education and create self-sustainability within each of its partner schools. Through partnerships, A Spring of Hope strives for the long-term success of each school through increased school attendance, graduation rates, and community involvement.

Programs

A Spring of Hope conducts all of its economic and social development initiatives at schools, which we call "partner schools." By leveraging existing infrastructure, A Spring of Hope can reach more children and their families than if we worked exclusively in remote, rural communities. Schools are where families come together - a community center. Moreover, schools are already centers for sharing knowledge, an important activity in improving community health and economic well-being. Our partner schools determine their own path - we do not use a "one size fits all" approach. We begin all of our partnerships with providing clean sources of water, at the school's request. Follow-up initiatives such as gardening, athletic, and cooking programs are designed by schools and implemented with the help of A Spring of Hope.
