Fund artisan skills training
RISE is committed to the economic empowerment of survivors. It’s not just about helping survivors earn an income, though that’s important! It’s about providing opportunities that give survivors more options- for example, to leave abusive relationships because of their newly found financial independence. In addition, acquiring craft making skills and then using those skills to better their lives is enormously rewarding. For many survivors, it is the first time in their lives that they experience what it’s like to enact and realize positive change for themselves.
Collect & distribute craft supplies
RISE collects donated craft supplies and distributes them to our partner centers in Uganda and Nepal. Survivors then use these beads and other materials to create jewelry that is later sold around the world.
