I just wanted to say thank you to all of those that keep this organization moving forward. I think what you are doing is truly amazing and I wish there was more people in this world with the compassion, drive, and good intentions that your organization so clearly demonstrates! It is hard to imagine our lives without running water. We are so blessed living in the United States of America. What better way to show how blessed we are than by supporting a nonprofit that gives others what we couldn't imagine life without. Thank you so much to A Spring of Hope. Please know that there are so many out here sending prayers, positive thoughts and spreading the word about your great determination as you continue to build wells so that the schools in rural parts of South Africa and Uganda can have fresh water systems. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Hilary Kroesen

A Spring of Hope is one of the most amazing organizations that I've had the pleasure of being a part of. I feel that ASOH truly empowers the communities in which it works by providing the tools necessary for people to have access to fresh, clean water. There is a specific injustice as to the burden that automatically falls on women and young girls in rural, impoverished communities to care for the home. Instead of needing to walk miles to find fresh water for their families, they can spend that time in a classroom and have fresh water right there. The world needs organizations like ASOH to educate our citizens to continue to address disparities abroad. Joanne and Brittany, the founders, are two of the most inspiring women that I've ever met. This world needs more of them!

This is a truly amazing group led by two of the most positive and caring people I have ever met!! Joanne and Brittany are an inspiration to us all and are opening the eyes of regular ordinary citizens to the horrendous situation faced by many underprivileged South Africans. Everyone has heard about the devastation that can occur to a population without clean water, but never I or my associates have been shown the realities of that devastation. Joanne and Brittany are excellent communicators that are able to paint a real life picture of this devastation and how it plagues entire villages on the African continent. Their focus and commitment to help is unmatched. I know personally that through their efforts they have gained a true following throughout the community and have motivated many like myself to jump into action and help!!
