The Story of SPARK

Spark Foundation Picture

One sunny Sunday afternoon, two friends were journeying home after a packed weekend of conferences and workshops. During their ride, they discussed the potential impact young people could have if they united.

They believed that to ensure a bright future, it was crucial to equip their peers and future generations with the skills to become strong leaders and citizens, empowering them to ignite change.

From that sunny Sunday in 2014, the vision of the SPARK Foundation materialized into reality. Over the years, the SPARK Foundation has implemented hundreds of educational programs, fostering growth both locally and internationally. Since that pivotal car ride, the founders and supporters have remained steadfast in their commitment to advocating for UN SDG #4 quality education and youth engagement.
