Rise Africa is a local charity set up by a schoolgirl from Kimbolton School which helps support the education of some the most vulnerable children in Tanzania.
Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. Around 58% of the population are living on less than $1 a day, with 9 in 10 of these poor people living out in rural areas – their survival entirely dependent on the farming of their livestock and crops.
By providing these disadvantaged children (most of whom are orphans) through sponsorship, with free education and training, Rise Africa helps young people to become self-sufficient and escape the vicious cycle of poverty.
