Kanyamibwa is a transformed teacher

One of the joys of our work is seeing transformation happen in all lives—from parents to leaders, teachers to students, and even lives beyond those of whom we directly work. When one person experiences transformation in the way they act and see the world, their new attitude has ripple effects on everyone they encounter. They spread their light to others.

And that’s exactly what happened—and is still happening—with Teacher Kanyamibwa at Kacyiru I Primary. Read more…

Together we can be a catalyst for transforming education in Africa

Wellspring’s work is building momentum, and is continuing to impact the lives of thousands of children, teachers, leaders, parents, and school communities in Rwanda.
