THE OPPORTUNITY

As the humanitarian arm of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM), Wellspring International identifies organizations aiding women and children at risk, giving financial support to vetted projects and providing individual scholarships to support education, healthcare, and basic living needs. It is our privilege to aid 16 organizations and provide scholarships for 9 women and 6 children around the world.

THE CHALLENGE

RZIM covers the administrative and operating cost of Wellspring International, thus enabling one hundred percent of donations to be distributed to projects overseas. Funding designated to the General Fund is reviewed by our director and divided between the projects with the greatest financial need at the time of the donation.

You can be confident that with regular site visits, audit reports, and project management, Wellspring is looking out for your best interest and preserving the integrity of your contribution. By connecting you to genuine need, together as partners we impact a world far beyond ourselves.
