On a sunny Sunday afternoon, two friends were heading home after a long weekend filled with conferences and workshops. On this ride home they were talking about how together, WE young people can make a difference.
If WE want our futures to look bright, WE have to start training our peers, and the next generations on how to be strong leaders and citizens; and help them SPARK change.
On that sunny Sunday, the idea of SPARK foundation became reality. It has been over 7 years of SPARK foundation programs, and 9 years of growing the SPARK foundation community. Since that car ride home, the founders and its supporters have never looked back.
