We wanted to write a quick message of thanks to you for supporting our year-end campaign. With the generosity of donors such as yourself, Wellspring raised $200,000. We sent you a big ask—help us fulfil a $100,000 matching grant to spark transformation in education across Rwanda—and you came through! We are overjoyed at this response and know that these funds will go a long way in transforming heartache into hope for children in Rubavu and across Rwanda.

We hope that you will stay in touch throughout the year. Make sure you like our facebook page for regular updates about our work, news, and beautiful photos from Rwanda. We’d also love to see you at one of our events. Come out to the 2018 Gala, Rachel’s Ride, Lake2Lake fundraising cyclathon, or one of our dessert nights to learn more about Wellspring and say hi to our North American team!

As we head into 2018, there are so many fun ways to get involved with Wellspring and continue playing a role in the story of quality education in Rwanda: donate your birthday, climb a mountain, ride a motorbike across Africa—the possibilities are as endless as your creativity! If you haven’t already, consider joining our School Partner family and support a specific school through our innovative training. You’ll receive individual updates about your school, along with impact stories from people across all our programs.

Thank you once again for providing quality education to children in Rwanda. You are empowering the next generation of changemakers, community shapers, and world leaders. We couldn’t be more grateful!
