Every Child Deserves the Opportunity to Thrive
Arise is a faith-based Canadian charitable society that is dedicated to improving the lives of children-at-risk around the world.
We exist to empower children and youth through transformational education enabling them to thrive and influence the future of their nation.
We envision a self-sustainable school that can be reproduced, graduating students who impact their nation through creativity and integrity.
Children and youth are at the heart of everything we do.
We actively engage with local leaders and global partners to generate lasting and sustainable change.
We embrace accountability, transparency, and excellence.
Compelled by love, we are moved to action to help children and youth.
We believe that creativity, innovation and entrepreneurialism catalyze transformation.
We strive to be a catalyst for change in desperate communities by providing loving care, education, primary health care, and community development. We start the process of change through cultivating meaningful links between the developed and developing world.
Poverty leads to injustice when the support structures of family, community, and nation fail to provide for the basic needs and fundamental rights of vulnerable people. Arise’s development model recognizes that it takes the collaborative effort of many to oppose poverty and restore justice. ARISE inspires and enables children-at-risk to rise out of hopelessness and lead their communities to create more just and equitable nations. We begin by meeting the immediate needs where possible, while working towards sustainable solutions to the fundamental issues of poverty. Arise has a special focus on children as the most vulnerable members of society, but recognizes that whole communities must be empowered to fight against injustice together.
All assets purchased by Arise will remain under the stewardship of Arise or an Arise designate.
Management of Arise programs and projects is conducted by Arise team members or designated local operating groups. Management groups have a secure and established identity and relationship with Arise and are accountable to the Arise board of directors.
All Arise projects have established protocols, procedures, and standards to ensure quality and accountability.
Financial resources are directed and managed by Arise and through partnership with agent organizations. Arise directors and staff supervise the distribution of local funds in order to ensure strict oversight over finances.
Accountability of all Arise operations is maintained through on-site management, a national board, regular written reports, and periodic Arise inspections.
Arise is called to address the fundamental issues of poverty and injustice that put children at risk. In order to accomplish our goals, we have a dynamic organizational structure based on the following three core values:
We promote and value synergistic relationships with people who are willing to commit to a collaborative process and who share common values and goals.
We build together with the combined strength of others, making decisions based on the input and collective wisdom of the team.
We realize that in order for Arise to achieve its vision, we must work in relational partnerships, modeling our values while we each contribute in our areas of expertise and influence.
Facilitating a home environment or community center where children-at-risk are able to find provision, safety and love
Providing holistic care for children-at-risk through healthy physical, spiritual, and emotional development
Providing access to quality education opportunities for children-at-risk
Helping communities develop their own capacity to care for children-at-risk through collaboration, counselling and training
Launching and developing business ventures that allow for self-sufficiency
Developing partnership models that are successful and reproducible for maximized impact and sustainability.
The Arise team has diverse skills and capacities. We share core values and are committed to transformation of communities so that every child will have the opportunity to thrive.
Your significance is not in what you wear, what you own, or who you know. How you impacted the world around you will be what is remembered and celebrated. This is your opportunity to be a world-changer
