2023 End of Year

Because of your incredible support, we have been able to accomplish so much this year. We cannot thank you enough for your generosity, and we are expecting an even more amazing 2024!

Thank you again for all that you have done, and we hope you have a wonderful new year.

Below are just a few Bright Spot highlights of 2023 and some to look forward to in 2024.

Changemaker Program

In 2023, we launched our Changemaker Program for 79 families in our communities. This program helps families lift themselves out of poverty through Restorative Agriculture training for the parents, a transformative education for the children, and healthcare for the entire family. These families have all seen an impact in their lives already, and we are adding 44 more families to the program in 2024!

Sister City Partnership

This year, the city of Tulsa began a Sister City partnership with the city of Mwanza. Mainsprings along with Tulsa Global Alliance, the City of Tulsa, and the Mwanza City Council are all working together to help build this relationship that will benefit both cities economically, socially, and culturally. We’re especially excited about this partnership that will further connect the two cities Mainsprings calls home!

Science & Creation Fair

Mainsprings’ Joesph and Mary Schools held its first ever Science & Creation Fair this year. Students from all ages and grades participated in this fair, creating pieces like solar water pumps from recycled plastic bottles, a rocket launcher from Legos, and an excavator using syringes as the hydraulic press. We were blown away by the creativity of our students and are looking forward to expanding the Science & Creation Fair to include more school in the region!
