2017 Project will be announced on April 3rd!
Arise Africa has been proud to partner with Clayton and Ellen Kershaw through the Kershaw's Challenge Campaign since the beginning of Arise.
Throughout the past years, Arise Africa and Kershaw's Challenge Campaign has raised more than $1,000,000 to help fund the Arise Homes and improve community schools. This partnership has helped purchase land, build homes and classrooms, drill water wells, and fully furnish schools and the Arise Homes.
As our partnership continues, Kershaw's Challenge helps keep the Arise Homes running with donations for improvements and medical funds.
In December of 2012, The Arise Home opened its doors to the first children who called it their home. These children had been malnourished, under-educated and abandoned. Their story is now vastly different. However, we saw that there were still so many children in that same situation who need our help. Arise Africa was excited to partner with Kershaw's Challenge in 2014 and 2015 to raise funds for a second home. The Arise Home 2 will open in late summer of 2016 and is currently under construction. Arise Africa will then be able to have 25 children living in full time custody between both homes.
