Buy a Bike
We are hoping to help children have shorter commutes to school. Help us purchase bikes as incentives for good behavior, grades, and attendance. Bikes would also be purchased for our kids in the Arise Homes to use after school and in the neighborhood. You will receive a photo of the child who receives the bike you funded!
PROJECT COST: $200.00 per bicycle
Fund a Fort for the Arise Homes and Our Schools (3 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 This is very expensive and textbooks are out of date quickly.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.
Help purchase picnic tables for our Schools
We are working on providing an eating area for one of the schools we work in. We currently feed 300 kids in two shifts everyday at the school. They currently eat on the ground in the dirt. We would love to have picnic tables where the kids can eat and even use between classes.
PROJECT COST: $300.00 per picnic table
