Adopt a Project
Although education and discipleship are our main focuses, Arise Africa believes strongly in developing the whole child. We desire to give our children opportunities create memories with each other through some of life’s simple joys. Below are a few ways you can partner with us outside of sponsoring a child!

Help us care for our teachers by donating towards a teacher appreciation activity!
Our teachers are INCREDIBLY important to our program. Without well educated, hard working, invested teachers, we couldn’t provide the education to our children in Zambia that they deserve.
Arise Africa has a strong desire to show our teachers appreciation through taking them to dinners, giving them transportation stipends, Christmas gifts, extra personal teaching supplies and more. Our teachers come highly recommended and could be making a better salary at a private school in the area. However, out of their passion for educating underprivileged children, have joyfully joined our efforts at Arise.
We feel a responsibility and it is our privilege to show our teachers how grateful we are for their hard work and sacrifice. Help us tell them “thank you” by donating to our Teacher Appreciation fund!
NOTE: If you wish to donate funds to teachers at a specific school please let us know!
PROJECT COST: Unlimited. $100 will be enough to fund one meal outing with the entire teaching staff, but we will always need funding to show our teachers the appreciation they deserve! We will send you photos!
Help purchase educational tablets for two classes (20 tablets)
The ZEdupad is an educational tablet that helps children learn. The ZEduPad is programmed in eight different languages native to Zambia with over 12,000 pre loaded classes and lesson plans for untrained teachers. Approved by the Zambian Ministry of Education, the educational tablet allows children to create a personal profile on its seven-inch screen to keep track of their progress.
The tablet is also programmed with the latest Zambian curriculum. The government of Zambia changes curriculum for each grade consistently. Because of this, textbooks are constantly having to be purchased and replaced by Arise Africa. This is very expensive and textbooks are out of date quickly. With the Zedupad when curriculum changes Arise Africa pays a very small fee to get all tablets updated. Arise Africa currently uses Zedupads in 2 of the 4 community schools that the child sponsorship program is in. We hope to have Zedupads in all schools which will cut down on our textbook costs drastically and save Arise Africa thousands of dollars a year.
PROJECT COST: $3,000.00
Help Decorate the Arise Homes
We would love to decorate the two Arise homes with personal photos and comforting accessories such as pillows. Our children are coming to the homes from very difficult situations and we would like to have a place that is inviting, family focused, and helps them feel loved and safe. Help us have funding for picture frames, printing photos, and purchasing other home friendly items.
PROJECT COST: $500.00 per home
Shop for the Arise Home
We are constantly needing items for both Arise Homes. As kids grow, clothes are needed or different books in the library would help them in school. Please consider shopping our Arise Home wish list on Amazon. If you would like to receive a tax receipt for the item(s) you purchased please forward us your Amazon receipt and we will provide one for you.
Fun “outing” for Arise Homes
We love to have extra funds for activities for our Arise Home children! By funding this project you will enable our Arise Home house parents to take our children out on activities such as a pizza night, the movies, the local swimming pool, Art exhibits, go carts, the Air Show at the airport and more. Having the opportunity for activities enables us to expose our children to more and makes life much more fun! This donation funds the transportation costs and the activity costs. We do allow the children and house parents to choose the activity once funds are donated. You will receive an email update with photos from the activity once the donation comes in and the activity happens.
PROJECT COST: $150.00
