We are a 501(c)3 non-profit providing educational support to orphaned and at-risk children in Mangochi, Malawi. Every year the people of Malawi face life-threatening diseases in the form of malaria & HIV/AIDS, leaving thousands of children orphaned or struggling to pay for daily needs & education. Our goal is to provide the educational and livelihood support necessary for these children to have a future of self-reliance and hope.
RiseUp Malawi currently supports 10 youth in educational scholarship for secondary education (highschool). Over the past 5 years we have provided over 85 mosquito nets to the community of Mangochi as well as 3,500 kgs. of maize in food aid. We run a free youth entrepreneurship program in the village that teaches children computer skills and in 2018 we launched a music program to give young adults a safe space to express themselves and use song to talk about sensitive issues like HIV/AIDS, child marriages, etc.
