RISE Ursuline Academy

RISE Ursuline Academy (RISE UA) in Cincinnati, Ohio was founded by high school students Kavya Vinod and Michelle Bohman in 2019. After attending various RISE events, Kavya and Michelle were inspired to extend RISE into their own high school. RISE UA quickly grew into a chapter of passionate advocates who created a community that is excited to be supporting acid attack survivors worldwide.

Current project

Knitting Training, Nepal

RISE UA is raising funds for a knitting training for survivors of acid and burns violence for our partner center in Nepal, ASTITWA Nepal. Knitted products are popular in Nepal, as many purchase them from their local markets and tourists keep them as souvenirs. By training survivors in knitting, they gain skills that will help them earn income.
