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.

Our annual fundraising effort ends on January 15th. A huge thank you to everybody who has already contributed!! In our final week, we have just just under $10,000 to raise. With your support, we know that we can meet our goals and help more youth leaders like Monzur. Please donate today! https://www.wellsmountaininitiative.org/donate/

Monzur turned his love for animals into a career as a licensed veterinarian. Growing up with seven siblings in a poor community in Bangladesh, he was raised to care for and treat livestock well - as farm animals often were the only source of income for many families. As a student, Monzur was active in advocating for animal rights and improving livestock welfare. Monzur received a WMI Community Development Grant to create a community awareness campaign against the transmission of rabies. The project was successful in educating over 1000 participants and in vaccinating 90% of the registered domestic feline and canine population in Sylhet. Monzur shares, “As a vet its my responsibility to save both animals and humans.” Monzur continues his studies in specialized veterinary medicine and has the goal of becoming a government veterinary surgeon.
