RISE is a UK/rwandan partnership aiming to inspire individuals to make positive impacts in their own lives. We believe that powerful changes start with one person; that everyone has the ability to live life with an impact. We enable some of the worlds most disadvantaged young people to build brighter futures for themselves.

-an income generation project to pay for teachers salaries and tuition fees for the most disadvantaged students
