A few months ago, I was standing in a dusty schoolyard in the rural hills of the Rubavu District, cheering students on as they declared their dreams for their classmates, families, community, and the world to hear. Every child had a vision for their future, a unique one that was tailored to their individual passions, interests, and personality. With the help of Fill in the Blank Studios, we recorded these dreams for a film about the importance of education. This month, we premiered this film along with two others at our annual Gala in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We raised over $418,000 for quality education in Rwanda that night. It was an evening full of many memorable moments. Co-founder Richard Taylor attended the event, and we were blessed to send him off into his new role at Trinity Western University with celebration and prayer. Another standout moment was watching the film “Girls: Education Changes Everything” and seeing the kids declare their dreams again with the knowledge that they have a very real chance to reach them thanks to the quality education they will now receive because of generous partners like you!

Together we can be a catalyst for transforming education in Africa
Wellspring is a Christian organization working to empower the next generation of Rwandans through quality education. We believe we are uniquely placed to be a catalyst for transforming education and fostering vibrant communities that address poverty in all its forms. Why do we do this? Because we believe that every individual, no matter their circumstances, should be shown the same dignity and worth that Jesus showed us.
