Rising International

Poverty has a woman’s face. Across the world and across the street it’s women and girls who suffer the most.

At Rising International we believe ending world poverty begins at home. We enable women in America who are surviving extreme poverty, gender-based violence, homelessness, and human trafficking to connect with other survivors around the globe. Through the power of entrepreneurship, they help each other to rise.

In 2002, we became the first non-profit organization to revolutionize the home party business model by using it to alleviate extreme poverty, both locally and globally. Think Avon or Tupperware for a social cause.
