Wellspring is blessed with a fantastic team of people who are deeply committed to use their gifts and serve through this organization. We currently have thirty full time staff members working out of the Rwanda office, twenty seven of whom are Rwandans, one Ugandan, one British and one Canadian. The core work of the organization in Rwanda at present is driven by our Program and is supported by Operations with the necessary backup of finance, logistics, IT, Human Resource Management, INGO operating requirements etc. We have done our best to organize ourselves to get our work done efficiently and to be constantly guided by the ongoing learning from our field based teams who work daily with educators, community members and officials. Our trainers gently but persistently provide supportive leadership towards a quality education wherever they are.Great field staff requires great support, analysis, and response, and here too Wellspring is blessed with a great management team: Theogene Kayiranga serves as our Program Manager in charge of our Quality Education program.
