Review for Mainsprings: Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children Inc., Tulsa, OK, USA
My 17-year-old daughter and I spent 8 days at Mainsprings in June, 2018 - it was transformational and we can't stop talking about it. The girls at Mainsprings are extraordinarily smart, kind and hard-working. They are such pure inspiration to be around. And they treat you like a family member and shower you with love. What a joy it was to spend our afternoons with the girls on art projects, reading, at prayer hour (non-denominational and run by the girls), eating meals and just talking and playing. We worked in the kitchen in the mornings and in the garden. We learned a great deal about permaculture and worked on our Swahili. We befriended teachers there as well and had the honor of having dinner with Mr. Kitula and his family at his home. I wish every child in the US could spend a week at Mainsprings - it's a brilliant reciprocal learning and growing process about what is important in life and how to lead a meaningful life.
