We Are Together Campaign

Our We Are Together campaign provides a good quality education for children, including all the children that appear in We Are Together, an award winning film about the Agape orphanage in South Africa.
The RISE Foundation pays for the children's school fees, uniforms, books, stationary, school trips and provides an after-school tutor to help them achieve their full academic potential. Since 2005, when our programme began, we have witnessed incredible growth in the children emotionally and academically. They have newfound pride and confidence as well as English fluency, improved grades and realistic goals. However, sponsoring the children's education is a long term commitment and we need your help to continue offering this support. You become a We Are Together Education Programme Sponsor for just £5 a week and help give a child the future they deserve.
