RISE University of Cincinnati

The University of Cincinnati is a public university located in Cincinnati, Ohio.  RISE University of Cincinnati (RISE UC) was founded by former UC student Divya Vinod in 2017. It was RISE’s first student chapter and inspired the establishment of many other student chapters across the US!

We’re currently raising funds for:

Tailoring Training, Uganda

This project involves providing funding to send survivors to tailoring training in the communities where they live.  Funding training in the survivors’ own communities avoids costs such as transportation and meals and provides the participant with a vital link to his or her own community.  Survivors will learn to make tailored items including clothing, purses, and home goods, which they will sell in local and international markets.  The income they earn will allow them to better support themselves and their families.
