Empowerment of Youth & Women
While relief is required in certain circumstances, Arise prefers to develop the capacity of individuals through education and opportunity. We often target people groups who need empowerment but have few options. Youth and women are resourceful people groups that are often neglected by society. Youth have passion and health and availability to invest in solutions that can build a future while women are often highly motivated by the need to support their family. These qualities make youth and women good investments.
Arise is engaged in empowering youth in China and Uganda today. In China Arise staff are developing programs that would continue to build life and employment skills for youth who have aged-out of orphan homes but have not been effectively equipped. In Uganda today, Arise staff live and work in the slums of Kampala where they invest in youth skills and knowledge.
These are just a few of the ways Arise is engaging to transform communities. Would you be willing to help us empower youth and women through a financial contribution, fundraising or advocacy? We rely on partners to encourage and enable our work.
