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 This is very expensive and textbooks are out of date quickly.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.

Build a Library
Arise Africa is looking to build a library at the Arise Christian School! The school currently has children enrolled from Babies Class to Grade 8. We would convert a 20-foot shipping container into a library complete with windows and a door. Purchasing books in Zambia is very expensive. Arise Africa would work with local partners in America to get books donated for free and then ship them over. This would be more cost effective than buying books in Zambia.
Funding for this project would include a 20 foot shipping container, doors, windows, bookshelves, desks, book shipping, and possible contingency that could occur. Click here to download our flyer for the library.
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.

Help Fund Solomon's Bachelor Pad!
We are currently looking for funding to help fix up a rundown building located on our property at the Arise Christian School. This building would allow Solomon, our Child Sponsorship Director at Arise Christian School, to live on campus. This would enable our children to have access to a safe place and trusting adult full time. It also would provide added security to the campus, which is currently needed.
Funding for this project would include a new roof, windows, doors, plumbing, and a kitchen.
PROJECT COST: $6,000.00
