Welcome to RISE
RISE engages secondary school students in the UK to raise child literacy in rural India through a social enterprise programme. We restore the true spirit of education by enabling young people in the UK and rural India to overcome societal and self-imposed limitations.
We are recruiting for a UK Director - find out more here.
Take a look at our 5 year Journey below and find out a bit more about us:
