Learners at A Spring of Hope’s partner schools tell us what #WaterIs to them.

Lack of Water Creates Hardship for Students

Important is 11 years old and she attends one of the over 2,400 schools in South Africa that does not have a reliable source of clean water.  She and her fellow learners must walk to a neighboring secondary school with jerry cans in wheelbarrows to retrieve a limited supply water for drinking and cooking. Lack of access to water creates hardship for eager learners like Important, but you can help us change that!

Lack of access to clean water results in
the spread of disease, increased absenteeism
from illness, and poor nutrition.

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day is observed worldwide each year on March 22nd. It is an opportunity to focus attention on a natural resource that all our lives and livelihoods depend on. It is a day on which to be inspired and take action to make a difference for those who can’t take water for granted. For A Spring of Hope, it means drawing attention to, and asking donations for, the basic fundamentals of our program, boreholes, permaculture, and sanitation.


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.
