Our team wants to thank you for your support this holiday season! 

Donors like you have made it possible for us to continue our WASH programs and support our partner schools and communities with gardens and food support throughout the pandemic. Over the years, we have worked to provide clean water, improve sanitation facilities and create thriving gardens at schools in Mpumalanga and Limpopo South Africa. This pandemic has made our efforts to improve conditions at schools and within these rural communities, that much more critical. We have big goals for the new year and hope you will join us as we work to open our Permaculture Centre and expand our outreach to include new WASH projects and new community programs. 

We are committed to providing clean water, improved sanitation, and increased food security to schools in rural South Africa. We believe all students deserve to learn in a safe, healthy, and supportive environment, without fear of getting sick, going hungry/thirsty, or being in danger. We want to help more schools achieve success, improve their classrooms, and provide greater support and education for their learners. You can help us do this!

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.

Safer Kitchens

By improving the conditions of our partner school kitchens for the volunteers who prepare the meals, we create a healthier work environment and eliminate the time spent hauling wood and standing over large fires inhaling smoke.

Girls Programs

Our Strong Girls Make Strong Women campaign helps empower young women by offering them the resources they need to stay in school, teaching life skills, setting S.M.A.R.T goals, and providing them with menstrual health products.

Junior Acheivement

In order to address the massive challenge of youth unemployment in South Africa, A Spring of Hope partnered with Junior Achievement to teach young people about the management of economics, business, entrepreneurship and personal finances.

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.

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 outdoor classroom is also finished, with the first permaculture classes held in the fall of 2019. The construction of the main centre is underway and security cottage will be starting soon. The netting is finished for our permaculture gardens and we have been harvesting vegetables for our partner lodge, Thulani.
