Help Rwandan Children Receive a Quality Education

When you ride, walk, or run this year’s Lake2Lake, you’re creating lasting change in children’s lives by helping them access an education that not only nurtures their intellect, but their heart and character.

The Wellspring Foundation for Education

Funds raised through cycling in the Lake2Lake ride will impact 195,000+ children, their teachers, leaders, parents, and wider communities, through the work of The Wellspring Foundation in Rwandan schools.

Students with a brighter future


Wellspring works to empower a new generation of Rwandan leaders through education that transforms lives. Wellspring’s team of Rwandan trainers works with all stakeholders – school leadersteachersparents, and community leaders – in 134 public schools, equipping them to see these schools transformed into vibrant learning communities in which 195,000+ children can thrive and fulfil their potential. We are seeing incredible change taking place in these schools, with improved exam results, more children completing primary school and transitioning to secondary, increased teacher confidence, and stronger leadership. In addition to the quantifiable results, change is taking place at a heart level, as teachers truly understand their own value and the value of the children they serve – and this change is impacting many lives, both in the classroom and in the wider community. Funds raised through Lake2Lake play a huge part in helping these 134 Rwandan schools to experience sustainable change that will truly transform the lives of Rwanda’s next generation.
