RISE is an educational program that assists women who are seeking higher opportunities for themselves.
Our goal is to encourage the pursuit of an education, influence change, and increase educational opportunities for women and girls.

This program is divided into two categories

Higher Education
Support

Through this program, young women in Tanzania have the opportunity to empower themselves, become self-sufficient, and create a financially stable life for themselves and their families by receiving a higher education.

Educational Leadership & Management Training

Through this program, female educators in Tanzania will receive additional certifications in Educational Leadership, Management, and School Quality Assurance enabling them to take on more prominent roles in schools.

Our Impact

 

Building a community of educated women will plant the seeds of change. When these changes take root, they will fuel the momentum needed to create a sustainable future. Currently, we have 27 women in the R.I.S.E. program. 76 women in Haiti and Kenya were taught to make jewelry, sew, and run a business on eBay.
Our program enables women to harness their full potential and thrive in their future endeavors.

High Percentage

Women and girls represent a very high percentage of the world’s poor and suffer higher rates of discrimination and violence.

Gender Pay Gap

Women who work longer hours than men still end up earning less money.

Education

School attendance among girls from poor families is low due to boy’s education being seen as greater economic investment.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5
