Our mission is to create schools that open doors and change lives.

We expect every student to leave Rising ready for further study, for a good job, and to become a role model in society.

Founded in Sierra Leone in 2014, we provided emergency education to children kept out of school by the Ebola Epidemic before opening our first school in April 2015.

Today, we run 29 government schools in rural Liberia under the LEAP (formerly the Partnership Schools for Liberia) initiative, and 10 schools in Sierra Leone serving families looking for a high quality education at an affordable cost.
