The RISE Foundation is a registered charity that supports disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals in South Africa by providing access to education and financial grants.

Our work is made possible thanks to wonderful individuals, companies, foundations, schools, choirs and churches in the UK and abroad who help us raise funds and change lives!
