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 417 scholars in 44 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.

Today is UN International Mountain Day, a day dedicated to bringing awareness of how mountains are under threat from climate change. Today, WMI stands with youth globally, especially those who are from rural and rural mountain areas, to fight climate change and seek local solutions. Several WMI Scholars are directly tackling rural climate change issues. Gerardo Gomez, a WMI Scholar of Forestry Engineering from Mexico, conducted a reforestation project in the foothills of the Sierra Madres in Oaxaca. Leading by example, he was able to raise awareness in his community about how deforestation negatively impacts the climate.

Please donate today so that WMI can help youth leaders take on global change from the Global South.

Litia Baleilevuka of Fiji, an inspiring Wells Mountain Initiative scholar, pictured here, is dedicated to fighting climate change and preserving Fijian culture. With WMI support, she is studying Law at the University for the Center for United Nations Constitutional Research. She is an activist for Pacific Island Represent and the first Young Climate Ambassador for the Center for United Nations Constitutional Research. She was on Greenpeace’s list of  “5 Young Activists Who Inspired Us This Year” which also included Greta Thunberg. Despite her incredible activism, Litia says, “My utmost priority is my education so that I can be a better asset to those who are currently at the hard end of the stick that is bad policy making.” Please donate so that others, like Litia, can reach their dreams. Every dollar donated goes directly into funding the education of a young person.
