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!

Fund Durable Basketball Hoops (6 hoops)
We are looking to purchase basketball hoops that will last in Zambia. Our schools and homes have hoops that are not built for the large amount of children that use them daily. We need strong, durable, commercial grade sets.
Basketball hoops cannot be purchased in Zambia and the shipping of them is very expensive. We are tired of buying hoops and having to replace them regularly and pay for all of the shipping. We have decided to now purchase very strong hoops in America and ship them to Zambia. Although the price is more, this will pay off in the long run by not needing to replace them.
We need two hoops at the Arise Homes, two hoops at the Arise Christian School, one hoop at Taonga School, and one at the Complex.
NOTE: if you wish to donate funds for a hoop to a specific school or home please let us know!
PROJECT COST: $2,800.00 per hoop
Fund a Fort for the Arise Homes and Our Schools (2 forts)
We are hoping to partner with a local Zambian to build tree forts for our kids to play in. We would build two for community schools and one for our Arise Homes. Help us fund a fun way for our kids to enjoy the outdoors.
PROJECT COST: $2,000.00 per fort
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 This is very expensive and textbooks are out of date quickly.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.
Pizza Inn dinner for Arise Home
We love to take the Arise Home kids to get pizza every once in a while. By funding this project you will enable Arise Africa to take them to the local pizza restaurant that has a play set. The kids love to run around and play and eat pizza. This donation funds the transportation to Pizza Inn, pizza for all 15 kids and a housemom and drinks. You will receive an email update with photos from the pizza dinner if you fund this project.
PROJECT COST: $150.00
