We can’t do it all, but we can all do something…
Since 2008, we've worked with more than 20 partners in 18 countries. Each partner is unique, yet each are helping an orphan have a full and productive life. Our partners, some of them featured below, believe in holistic care providing a home environment with loving caretakers, an education, social activities, as well as medical care when needed. They care for the children into adulthood. Many children when they are grown come back to help as a way of saying thank you.
Our partners come to us in a variety of ways. Often they are word of mouth referrals, and at times they hear about us and apply online. In any case, our board of directors reviews the application and after much consideration, a partner is approved. After the approval process, we ask for a project proposal which our board also reviews and once its approved.... the fun begins! We love helping our partners provide safety shelter and sustainability for the children in their care. We like to call that feeling "Pure Joy".
Mainsprings believes no child should have to grow up in extreme poverty. They take a holistic approach to change in East Africa by providing refuge for abused and abandoned girls, quality primary and secondary education, access to rural healthcare and economic opportunity through permaculture. As a long time partner of 200 Orphanages, we are pleased to fund numerous projects over the years including dormitories, tractors, irrigation and green houses.

Nibakure Children's Village
Nibakure Children's Village, Rwanda
One of our first partners in helping raise funds for orphans was Floriane Nibakure, from Rwanda. Our funder met Floriane in Minnesota where they both resided and the rest is history. Fast friends in the mission, the first project was providing funds for a fence around the compound. The fence was completed, along with a well, dormitories and agricultural and livestock shelters. Sadly, the government decided to close all orphanages in Rwanda and Florian's vision turned to creating a school for children in the community called Nibakure Community Village near Nyamata. Her heart to help unfortunate and vulnerable children and help them have a future and a hope stands strong, as does the fence we funded those many years ago!
