I have been involved with "A Spring of Hope" for over 2 years now. I am based out of Singapore and met Brittany Young at a Social Innovation conference at Boston. Since then, I have also gotten to know Joanne quite well and have spent some time in S.Africa interacting with the Principals, staff and children of the schools that the organization works with.

The team's passion to bring a sustainable change, belief in innovation / entrepreneurship and giving the power to the local communities; while not making any unwarranted compromises in the process, make them stand out in a pool of "me-too" charitable groups. The organization's ecosystem has grown in significant leaps and bounds; and is at an important stage of strategic expansion to create the kind of impact that is needed in this part of the world.

I am looking forward to being a contributing factor to the rest of ASoH's beautiful journey.

A Spring of Hope is an organization built on an idea that was born from Brittany and Joanne's personal experiences in South Africa. They focus on long-term solutions which would make the schools and the local communities self-sustainable. In this increasingly complicated world, where Water has become a "commodity", this team stands for what Water represents to these schools - Hope, energy, education and sustenance.
