    Every day children die from preventable diseases, mothers die needlessly in childbirth, and hundreds of millions of people struggle to find enough food to sustain themselves while drinking contaminated water. Children Arise focuses on helping children at risk. This means helping children that are orphaned find food, clothing, education, love and purpose. It may also mean helping developing infrastructure for families and communities.

    Our Development Strategy

    ASSESSMENT - Assess the needs in a situation where injustice occurs
    RESPONSE - Respond to the immediate needs
    INVITATION - Invite local and international partnerships in collaboration
    SOLUTIONS - Solve root issues of injustice in sustainable ways
    EMPOWERMENT - Empower the restored community to bring change to others
