The first step to transforming the future is transforming education. We do this through our School Development Program, a holistic, innovative, and people-focused approach to sustainable change. We believe that every stakeholder—leaders, teachers, and parents—has their own unique role to play in supporting education. When they all rally together around kids, remarkable things happen.
Where we work
Our School Development Program operates in two vastly different parts of Rwanda—one school district surrounding the capital of Kigali and the other bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo—so that every child may have access to a quality Christian values-based education, no matter their location, no matter their circumstances.
Students with a future
In the schools we work in, and in the lives of those we serve, we are seeing change in tangible ways:
Decreased Dropout Rates
Students are receiving the support they need to stay in school, and many children who have previously dropped out are returning.
Improved Exam Results
Many schools are experiencing dramatic improvements in exam results, and more students are progressing to secondary level.
Classrooms are becoming positive, life-giving environments where children are valued and are actively engaged in their learning.
Parents and communities are now providing support and encouragement to students, and creative, practical support to schools.
MULTIPLYING OUR IMPACT
Wellspring’s vision is to be a catalyst for transforming education in Africa, and to see every child given the opportunity to thrive and fulfil their God-given potential. We work towards this vision both by walking alongside school communities and by investing deeply in the lives of others who have the potential to bring change.
