After meeting Joanne and Brittany it was clear they were dedicated to helping the villagers in South Africa, not by giving them stuff but by helping them become self-sufficient. The way things are structured as a donor, I have received feedback from Joanne and the women who I've helped. It is very satisfying to watch their progress.

I had the honor of meeting Joanne and Brittany on their first trip to South Africa. Their dedication is absolute and inspiring. They have achieved and continue to work toward fabulous goals of helping so many people with their founding and development of A Spring of Hope. I am proud to support this fabulous organization.

A Spring of Hope is an exceptional nonprofit. In some of the poorest and most arid parts of South Africa, ASoH provides rural schools with a dependable source of water for drinking, cooking, irrigation and hygiene.

In the areas served by ASoH, most rural schools have no running water.
For many, the primary source of drinking water is a tank truck sent out sporadically by the government.

At the schools they select, ASoH changes the dynamic by installing a modern electrically powered water well, and partnering with the school and other non-profits to install other components such as basic plumbing, irrigation systems, and rain catchers. ASoH also maintains contact with their schools to help ensure that the wells are maintained.

The changes at the schools can be profound. With a dependable water supply and an irrigation system, the schools are able to grow produce to feed the children. Some even grow a surplus they can sell to generate income for the school. And of course, the children are healthier as a result of being able to wash regularly. As a result, the schools become places where the children want to be, and where they feel safer.

Incredibly, because most of the administration is done by volunteers (BTW - the founders volunteer their time too), virtually all of the money raised through donations goes directly into projects on the ground. A real win-win situation.

We have personally traveled in Africa and seen the desperate needs of the children for adequate schooling. Spring of Hope helps to facilitate fulfillment of that need by providing potable water for the children, which, in turn, allows them more time for, and less distraction from, their studies. They are truely providing "grass rootes" necessities for these children.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing except raise more funds for their support.
