Ryan's Wells

Heritage Community Foundation, Albertasource.ca and The Famous Five Foundation
 
         

 

The example of the Famous 5 and other visionaries is being continued by a new generation of people who in a spirit of leadership, have decided to focus their efforts to make a difference in the world.

Ryan Hreljac of North Grenville, Ontario is one such individual. Inspired by his grade one teacher, Hreljac is a boy with a vision to organize funds in support of creating clean water and other health related services in Africa and other developing countries.

Despite his young age, Hreljac has created an organization that includes other children and adults alike. Whether his work draws people to support his cause to create safe wells or inspires them to contribute to the world, Hreljac is acting upon the spirit of leadership that the Famous 5 embodied.
