Since 2013, we have been supporting vulnerable youth who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS or who live in extreme poverty. We have been at the forefront of social change in Mangochi.
RiseUp Malawi is a Christian organization motivated by the Word of God to serve others through the gift of education. We aim to achieve real social change through carefully designed educational initiatives that empower young individuals in Malawi. By serving the most vulnerable in the community, we take a bottom-up approach towards breaking the cycle of poverty by intervening in the lives of those most at-risk. We value education as the primary means to a future of self-reliance and work closely with village elders, government officials, moms, dads, teachers and youth to understand their real needs and provide a hand-up, not hand outs.
