Social Change Through Education and Community Building
Where young people are able to realize their full potential and become leaders in creating the changes they want to see in their communities and, ultimately, the world.
Wells Mountain Initiative works to create social change through education and community building by providing bright young people in the developing world with student scholarships and skills training, building a network of grassroots leaders who are catalyzing community transformation.

WMI has provided 345 scholars in 42 countries with scholarships
professional development and skill building. Here’s how:

WMI provides financial and social support to undergraduate students obtaining degrees in community-oriented fields, and encourages them to be the agents of change in their own communities, nations and the world.

Although our Scholars program stands at the forefront of our mission, our special interest projects play an integral role in WMI’s vision for impact. Our legacy programs include community projects in Haiti and a global literacy program.

Prossy was responsible for screening,  diagnosing and treating patients, or referring them to major ailments. Alonyo reflected, “Patients were counseled, treated and reassured, they felt loved and cared for, it gave them hope and trust to also love and care for others”
