In 2005, the Wells Mountain Initiative was founded with the idea that young people in the developing world could be helped through the compromise of education, opportunity, and justice. The first efforts were aimed at scholarships. From the start, the focus has been on community service and encouraging scholars to volunteer.
With a study abroad program, our now CEO, Jordyn Wells, was fortunate to befriend Victoria Galle, his high school classmate in Ghana. Victoria was one of the most motivated students in her village and went out of her way to help others. As young women, Victoria and Gordon talked about how to make the world a better place so that more girls can become leaders, so there will be enough resources for everyone. In college, Jordyn returned to Ghana.
She soon discovered that Victoria did not have the same opportunities that she had to pursue these goals. Victoria could not continue to university because her family did not have the funds to pay tuition fees.
