Increasingly, ASoH is getting requests from community members in rural South Africa for permaculture workshops, for access to organic produce, and for economic opportunities for a sustainable livelihood, which is why we seek to establish an “A Spring of Hope Permaculture Centre”. The Centre will enhance our capacity to inspire, inform and equip community leaders to go back to their villages and begin to change the landscape, one home at a time.
Help us further our mission and make a lasting legacy by supporting our Permaculture Building Campaign!
We have currently raised $137,000 towards our goal.
You can further our mission and make a lasting legacy by supporting our Permaculture Building Campaign. We have many options for you to help realize our goal, including a special opportunity to have your contribution matched by long-time ASoH donors.
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.
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.
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.
