Help build a school Library

We are working in one of our community schools where we hold child sponsorship to build them a library.  Taonga School is wanting a library not only for the children in the school but also the surrounding community.  The library would be built out of a 20 foot shipping container complete with windows and a door. Download our PDF for more information.

PROJECT COST: $8,000.00


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. 


Purchase ipads for the Arise Home

We are looking to purchase two ipads with protection for the kids in the Arise Home.  These will be loaded with educational games as well as books.  We are working hard for our kids in the home to have technology and reading skills.  We believe the ipads will provide a healthy, and fun learning alternative.

PROJECT COST: $1,100.00


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: $600.00 per picnic table


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 8 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


Send a crate of 20 Bibles to Africa

We are always needing more Bibles to use in our community schools and with the children we work with.  They are used by our staff through Bible clubs that are held at the schools.  You will be giving the opportunity for a child to personally hold a Bible while learning, look at the pictures, and be able to read along.  It is much easier for our staff to teach when every child in their program has access to a Bible to read and hold.  The Bibles are kept in a safe storage room at the schools we work in and children have access to them throughout the school day under supervision.   

Arise Africa will pack and ship the Bibles through on a container ship to Zambia.  The cost of the Bible covers the purchasing of the Bibles, (either the Children’s Story Book Bible or Adventure Bible) the crate the Bibles are packed in, and the shipping costs. 

PROJECT COST: $400

Bibles packed and ready to be shipped to Zambia.
