Welcome to My Wishing Well page!

My name is Sofie and I'm 14 years old.  I live in Vancouver, Canada, but every year since I was little, I have been blessed to travel with my family to countries all around Southern and East Africa. Those trips and the kind and soulful people we have met, have inspired my art and my dedication to education and water issues, and have influenced me in a million other ways. I feel lucky that the Wishing Well project brings all these things together.  

Nearly 1.1 billion people lack access to clean water and education around the world. By raising money for a well and spreading awareness about this crisis together, we can help bring water to people who need it and maybe make it easier for kids, who would otherwise have to spend time and energy carrying water, to go to school.  My first Wishing Well fundraising target of $US 8000 was recently met, and will buy a well to supply clean water for a whole village, for 25 years or more!  This brings me immense joy and only makes me wish to keep going! As such, I have reset my target to $US 16,000, to work towards a second well!  I hope to work really hard to reach this new goal before the end of this academic year, and plan to visit Malawi in the summer of 2019, to witness these wells go in for myself!  

Thank you for coming to my page and for helping to connect art with water and education; the things I care about most.



P.S. If you would like to see any of my artwork, order some art pieces, or if you have any questions related to this project, please send me an email at info@sparklyandsmart.com.
