Strong Girls Make Strong Women!

We are excited to announce our new campaign, Strong Girls Make Strong Women. This campaign is focused on providing opportunities for young women at our partner schools. ASoH is doing this by holding a club for learners to connect with each other and discuss issues that are absent from school curriculum but very much important to build confidence and strengthen career planning among young women. Please make a donation to our Strong Girls Make Strong Women campaign to support young women in Mpumalanga and Limpopo.

Permaculture Centre Progress

Thanks to our generous supporters we have reached our goal.

We raised enough for the construction of the centre and broke ground on July 2018. Since then, we have made significant progress. The sanitation buildings are complete and the classroom will be receiving its roof shortly. The next phase will be construction of the main centre and security cottage. The netting is finished for our first permaculture garden and we have started planting seedlings. We are excited to hold our first classes in 2019.

Our Unique Approach Makes Us Different

Of course we think we are different, and we think you will too. Watch this informative video to see what we mean.
We have touched the lives of over 70,000 individuals directly through our work in the WASH+ areas: WAter, Sanitation, Hygiene + Permaculture Education. Here are some of the highlights of what we are doing in each area.

Our Vision

We seek to combat severe poverty in rural South Africa. If rural schools have the appropriate resources to invest in their students, students can be better equipped for fulfilling employment and leadership in and out of the workplace. A Spring of Hope invests in the development of South Africa’s future leadership so that they can, in turn, address pressing problems in their communities.

Boreholes

The core of our program is to provide water to underprivileged schools. When schools get a reliable source of fresh, clean water the health of students improves and economic development can begin.

Permaculture

Once schools have water, they can begin to cultivate gardens.  We provide them with seeds and irrigation equipment, and school staff learn how to maximize resources through our permaculture program.

Sanitation

Most rural schools only have crude, unhygienic pit toilets which spread disease. Because water tends to be scarce in this region, environmentally-friendly waterless toilets are the best solution.

Partnerships

A Spring of Hope is proud to work with several organizations who are equally as committed to stimulating economic development in impoverished rural South African communities and improving the lives of South African school children.
