RISE Rwanda was set up to support the education of vulnerable children in Rwamagana, Rwanda. Rise is also providing economic opportunities to the mothers and female guardians of these children, to reduce financial stress and enable self-sufficiency. In doing so, RISE Rwanda hopes to instate female role models as community leaders to support gender equality in Rwanda. These initiatives are financed through fundraising efforts, such as #givingbackthroughyoga and the RTE One World Fund.
