WATER IS LIFE. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
WE ENGAGE YOUTH TO CARE FOR THE WORLD AROUND THEM
The youth are our future. Obvious, but true. We can encourage their voices to be heard, or we can ignore their voices. At Wisdom Spring we have spent years working directly with teens on the East and West Coasts, encouraging leadership and skill building. We listen to their voices and their inspiration. There is much we need to hear and learn from this important group.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Help us build wells. Help us pay for tuition.
Make a CHOICE. Take ACTION. Create CHANGE.
What people often don’t realize is how something small can create a huge impact. Over the years we see the direct result of the donations given by individuals and organizations.
We see it in the 1,000’s of children whose covered tuition costs mean they can continue to learn and progress in school. We see it in the young girls not walking miles to fetch water —but yards — thanks to the wells built through donations from you.
We also see it in the teenagers we collaborate with, who learn how to bring their gifts forward and discover that they are leaders in their community.
This is real impact, not some abstract idea of people far away. We work hard to assure that each dollar designated for a project goes to that project and makes a difference. We take time to confirm that what we say we support is actually supported.
And we have much more work to do.
“Sometimes the water table would be so low that there would be no water. So the men would go down and dig up the mud and pass it to the women, who would take it and press out whatever water they could. Then they put ash on the top. The ash separates the mud from the water as it settled to the bottom so we would have something to drink. And when I saw the animals, the trees, and the people die…I used to wonder if there was any end to this.”
WHERE WE WORK
Over the years we have worked in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, and India. We are always exploring opportunities both overseas and in the United States. Part of this is finding strong and reliable partners to share the work with, since it takes many people to make a project happen. LEARN MORE.
Our Top Priorities
We commit every day to making long lasting change for the world around us. We do this through several key areas of focus that make up part of our core mission.
Our projects have the success they do because we engage high school age students in leadership roles. They bring a focus and passion that inspires others to contribute and get involved. They are the future of this work.
Knowledge is power. In parts of the world, covering the cost of school tuition poses a huge challenge for families. As a result access to education and higher learning becomes impossible. We commit to bridge that gap.
Water is life. We take for granted every day that we can simply turn on a tap and fill a glass or a pot with water. However this is not the experience of everyone in the world. We strive to improve that reality.
